Our GigaPOP (Front Range GigaPOP) and our own Akamai cache server's traffic
jumped significantly today.  The theory (no data) is the Apple updates
released today.

With all of Apple's updates today (MacOS, iOS, Apps, etc) we saw a big
increase on one of our links to our ISP at 1pm Eastern.

Did anyone else notice significant traffic jumps on their networks?
