We are in a similar boat. Almost 60% higher in traffic. We service medical, 
police, fire and a lot of technical orgs. They are doing constant conference 
calls. Big spikes in the morning.

On the other hand we also service hotels. That traffic is literally 
non-existent now.

We are doubling our server count this week in anticipation and shifting 
non-critical “data” side of the traffic to alternate paths.

We are +100% network traffic since the first lock-down happened. Its worth 
noting we are a healthcare focused carrier so this isn't at all surprising, and 
as more cities go into lock-down we expect this is going to move around, and we 
will probably see net +200%-400% traffic over YoY norms.

We have also seen +400% customer intake rate as healthcare providers scramble 
to be able to work remotely or rapidly scale staffing.

We are seeing both in regional surges as well.

It would be interesting to hear what kind of traffic shifts this group has 
observed over the past 2 weeks.  While certain variances are predictable, i.e. 
Mother's Day, I have no idea what to expect with millions of people in the US 
suddenly working from home every day and how that informs metrics, planning, 
reporting, etc.


Please wash your hands.
