[Tom's] Netflix Largest Source of NA Downstream Traffic

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Quote:
A new report provided by Sandvine reveals Netflix to be the single largest source of peak downstream Internet traffic in the United States, surpassing YouTube, BitTorrent, iTunes and even Facebook. Out of the top ten applications that account for 84.5-percent of America's downstream traffic, Netflix consumes 29.70-percent, up from 21-percent seen last fall, the report claims.
Quote:
As for BitTorrent, it's no wonder why the RIAA, MPAA and other entities are trying to strike fear into the hearts of file-sharers. 52.01-percent in upstream Internet traffic is a huge number, indicating that there are a lot of users uploading video, audio, software and additional digital media to other torrent users. Between BitTorrent and Netflix, it's understandable why ISPs are wanting to throttle traffic or resort to tiered plans.

So WHY can I still not get Weeds Season 6 on Instant Watch??? or Dexter seasons 3-5?

Yes saw this. I must say if Hulu keeps acting the way they are they have no chance to compete with Netflix. Hulu's one advantage is getting new episodes of TV shows up and online but now shows like In Plain Sight are a couple of weeks behind already.

Not to mention the poor video quality you get without paying for Hulu Plus. At first I was unhappy about not getting Hulu on my BP, but it gets Netflix, so I'm okay.

No ... its not "understandable". The logic behind this type of reasoning is ...

Oh people are really starting to use our service ... so lets limit the amount they can use so we can charge then extra fees if they go above that (so we can make more money!)

Anyone who does not understand that the only "logic" behind this is just so ISPs can make more money while providing more limited (less) services needs to wake up and smell the greed.

No idea how it could be construed any other way, really. What line of bull do they tell their customers when they change to a cap'd plan?

They just told me we are changing our terms of contract although there is still a year, but are keeping the same price. In other words, go **** yourself.

True enough...although, of course, that guy from Netflix makes this argument for the same reason$ that ISPs want to limit downloads. I hope torrentors appreciate how lucky they are to have Netflix' lobbying mu$cle on their side. Kind of ironic, in a way...

The biggest irony is how everyone automatically assumes
Torrenting = Piracy

Exactly! Torrenting is completely legal and those big companies do not see that at all. They are so blinded by the fact that it "could" be taking away money from them that they don't see the other side at all.

ISPs need to get it together or Google(or similar ideas) might take it away from them!(I can dream for 1GB/s from Google right?)
