Today, I spotted a very interesting complaint via Google Web Search Help. The complaint comes from a school in New Zealand with 1,200 students. Their Google Image Search data usage has more than doubled their weekly bandwidth fees.
The school administrator said, a typical week of bandwidth consumption at the school is about 17GB. Since the Google Image Search redesign, their bandwidth consumption has been 39GB! That is a 130% increase in bandwidth usage and that increases cause and responsiveness of the rest of the network.
Interesting complaint, don't you think?
