We go 128 kbps!

We’ve increased our broadcast streaming rate from 64 to 128 kbps. What the hell is this we hear you ask? Basically, we’ve doubled the quality of our audio streaming. 128 kilobytes is the average bit rate of MP3s on iTunes and, indeed, is the required bit rate for listing in iTunes Radio, which is one of our objectives in the increase, but mostly it’s about providing you with a better listening experience!
