Sudanese Guardian,

Adoption in times of crisis interests me, so I was curious about your note
and reached out to Ultrasurf for numbers:

Daily users have been around 200-400, daily hits 400K to 500K. Since
> yesterday, daily users jumped to over 1000, daily hits 2 million.

Few tools publicly release numbers, other than Tor which hasn't seen a
significant uptick in traffic. I am hopeful that other vendors on this list
have statistics that can be shared.
