Google Transparency Report

This tool provides information about traffic to our services around the world. Each graph shows historic traffic patterns for a given geographical region and service. You may select a region and then choose a service to view each respective graph. Graphs are updated as data is collected, normalised and scaled. By showing outages, this tool visualises disruptions in the free flow of information, whether it’s a government blocking information or a cable being cut.
