- Netflix accounts for 28% of ALL bandwidth usage nationally.
- Neflix peaked at 32% of downstream traffic this year.
- Neflix, HTTP, YouTube and BitTorrent account for 64.4% of all bandwith consumption!
More interestingly, there continues to be a rapid shift of traffic away from desktops (PCs) to set-top boxes, gaming consoles, and smart devices. Only 45% of internet traffic on fixed networks goes to desktop computers!
All I can say is ... wow. Netflix may have lost 800,000 subscribers since "Quickster-gate", but they were on the right track. Streaming is the future. For now, however, stop streaming video and slowing down my email!
