Just a few years ago it was Bittorrent traffic for that same video content. I'm glad someone finally responded to the demands of a modern world. *cough* cable companies, Sky *cough*

Well it is the way of the world. I have been enjoying the Netflix 4K and Amazon 4K the picture quality is very very good.

2 small points though

1) the chart is actually for peak traffic, not overall traffic. Streaming is very concentrated around the peak since that is when people are at home using it. (I.e. You don't use Netflix via your home connection unless you are at home). Torrents traffic isn't anywhere near as much peak time because people will often torrent things off peak to avoid congesting their own network (I will often start a large torrent in the morning and let it run during the day

2) jus because video is now a higher proportion of traffic, it doesn't follow that torrenting has dropped. Overall traffic has risen by an absolutely massive amount in that same period. Torrenting could easily have gone up in terms of absolute volume, but just not as fast as video.

Yep, peak traffic is the best indicator for operators and network designers with regard to dimensioning. I also didn't say Bittorrent traffic had dropped in fact I imagine, like most other forms of internet traffic, it has risen significantly but that the proportions had reversed.
