Bandwidth of SOAP website

First of all I’d like to start by thanking the SOAP team for hosting all this wonderful regionals footage, but I have to ask,

How much Bandwidth does your website go through during peak months, (i.e) right now?

It must be enourmous to support this volume of video downloads.

If it’s too much, one solution might be something called BitTorrent (http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/). It’s a kind of filesharing solution where the download comes from everyone who has that file currently online. However, unlike things like Kazaa, BitTorrent is completely transparent, a short download, no spyware, and just shares other .torrent files… I dunno, just a suggestion. Kudos to Soap for their great archives.

interesting stuff danman never heard of the product before, but very interesting.

Good question…We’ll try and post some stats on this.

Whatever it is, I’m sure it will be peanuts compared to when we stream Moto-Midwest and … Nationals.
