That's one of the headlines from Sandvine's Fall 2010 Global Internet Phenomena Report (http://www.sandvine.com/news/global_broadband_trends.asp#Download) , an exhaustive look at what people around the world are doing with their Internet lines. According to Sandvine, Netflix accounts for 20 percent of downstream Internet traffic during peak home Internet usage hours in North America. That's an amazing share — it beats that of YouTube, iTunes, Hulu, and, perhaps most tellingly, the peer-to-peer file-sharing protocol BitTorrent. Link to Original Source

you looked at it in the right way, did not become still more complicated.
