Study: Netflix streaming eats up 35% of downstream internet bandwidth

Netflix’s video-streaming service continues to be the most bandwidth-hungry application on the Internet, now accounting for a whopping 34.9% of all downstream traffic during peak periods on North American broadband networks, according to a new study. […] Amazon.com’s Instant Video represented 2.6% of peak downstream traffic in North America this fall. While that’s still far less than Netflix, Amazon’s video service has more than doubled its share of bandwidth consumption in the past 18 months, […] Hulu’s share of primetime downstream traffic stood at 1.4%, down slightly from 1.7% in the first half of 2014. […] The study found BitTorrent Inc. file-sharing traffic continues to drop as an overall percentage of bandwidth consumption, representing 2.8% of peak-period downstream traffic in North America.

In the Asia-Pacific region, however, BitTorrent still represents more than 33% of total traffic, according to Sandvine. Todd Spangler,Variety via Boston Herald

World Cup drove live streaming, not video traffic averages

Data from the World Cup revealed that some operators still need to learn how to deal with the rise in demand during live events for live video streaming. The study also highlighted the need for Quality of Experience (QoE) during large sporting events, saying audiences do not want a delay of even seconds during these times. When demand for mobile video spiked during certain games, the number of videos stalling and the seconds of video stalling doubled. For example, when the increase in demand rose by two times, mobile video stalling reached around 10 percent. However, when demand spiked higher (such as during the Brazil vs Germany game with a 20 times increase in data traffic across a single sports network, ESPN), the number of videos stalling and the seconds of video stalling doubled. – Telecompaper http://ift.tt/1oOxryE
