Google sent me to China

Yesterday, myself and few couple other Google users (just about a few million - 14% of Google's users) have been unable to use Google by about an hour.

Google's official explanation is simple: they were simply rerouting us through Asia, causing a massive data traffic jam that rendered their services inaccessible to most of the affected users.

During that time, while millions complained on Twitter, there were a few ISP that were certainly having a good time, as you can see in this chart...

Can you spot when Google traffic was missing from the regular traffic usage?

Well, next time Google decides to send me to China, I just hope it does that by sending me a plane ticket - preferably a first class ticket.
