Planning on Watching the Royal Wedding Live Online? You Probably Shouldn’t.

Estimated online attendance for the wedding is around 400 million. Provided YouTube could support that many connection (spoiler alert! It can’t), the estimated bandwidth required is about 800 million megabits per second. That’s if it’s streamed at 720p. Even taking that resolution down to 25% will still be an enormous strain on the modern Internet.

Still interested? has a wonderful guide on what to watch and where.

  1. Wedding craziness here at work. Everyone is buzzing about the wedding and how beautiful. All major channels are broadcasting the festivites. Most of the people here - watched it on TV or are recording it to watch after work
