UK ISP PlusNet has analysed web usage and traffic over its network on Christmas Day, revealing that many of its customers went online with high hopes of snapping up the best seasonal sale deals:

The Marks & Spencer and Argos websites featured in PlusNetís top ten most popular internet sites accessed, with traffic peaking at around 10pm.

Social networking sites YouTube, Bebo and Facebook also proved a big hit on Christmas Day as people opted to get online with friends and family to wish them seasonís greetings.

YouTube also benefited with people looking to access the Queenís speech online for the first time. Those looking for technical support for new technology helped Apple and Microsoft also make the PlusNet top ten.

The full PlusNet Christmas Day Top Ten Sites were:
1. Google
2. BBC
3. YouTube
4. Facebook
5. Bebo
6. Apple
7. Argos
8. Wikipedia
9. Microsoft
10. Marks & Spencer

"The shops may be shut but the Internet is always open," said Neil Armstrong, products director at PlusNet. "Christmas Day Internet usage shows that there is no day of rest for the British bargain hunter with many unable to wait until Boxing Day to bag the best deal."
