Netflix is Responsible for 15% of Global Internet Traffic and video generates most of the traffic via @Statista @MHalle

This chart shows a distribution of worldwide downstream traffic, by web application in 2018.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.statista.com

WHY IT MATTERS: I reported in 2015 that Netflix + YouTube accounted for 55% of web traffic. Their share is down only because the other streaming video services are growing. Also interesting from this chart that HTTP (good old web browsing), now only accounts for less than 10%. This means video is the medium of choice, cable TV is on it’s way out (so expect more growth) and 5G mobile coverage will be in high demand when it becomes available soon…
