Neil Armstrong (PlusNet's products director) sounded very enthusiastic as he described the overwhelming broadband usage.
"The demand to play Grand Theft Auto IV online has been absolutely phenomenal. Our broadband usage figures have gone through the roof as customers’ battle it out on the streets of Liberty City."
Armstrong also said that the day after GTA IV's release, PlusNet had the busiest two hours of gaming in the United Kingdom.
"Gaming accounted for approximately 7.6 percent of all downloads in that hour – we'd normally expect to see between 3.5 percent and 5 percent by gaming around that time of day."
