My Internet provider helpfully provided a URL for their backbone service
MFS Data Networks. MFS in turn provide usage graphs by time of day which
I amj sure are typical of other Internet traffic. Check out
Basicvally it seems that Internet usage, while a bit higher during the
day, is pretty constant from 9am to midnight and to get a really quiet
time you need to log on at 6am EST.
For an individual ISP of course much depends on whether their marketing
is aimed mainly at business or home users. From what I know of
Compuserve's usage patterns, I'd guess residential ISDN would be used
mainly from 4pm to midnight with a peak at around 9pm
