Netflix Is Not Overwhelming The Internet

Posted May 21, 2011

Earlier this month Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) was reportedly the largest Internet traffic source in the U.S. by accounting for 29.7% of peak downstream traffic. A new report by ITWorld reports that the flood of traffic affects the last portion from Netflix servers to homes. The average Netflix user consumes about 40GB per month. That is only about one-sixth of the 250GB cap that ISPs provide. [CoreIT]
