New figures published on the GigaOm website reveal some interesting facts behind internet use today.
The two big stats reveal that 10% of web users make up for 80% of bandwidth. These superusers are sucking up most of the Internet, doing whoknowswhat. (My guess is that they are uploading and downloading entire BSG box sets, playing World Of Warcraft, watching Lonelygirl15 and chatting on IM. And Skype. Simulatiously.)
The other big figure is that P2P now accounts for around 20% of total traffic. 50% comes from streaming video. YouTube is the main culprit.
So next time you watch a cute video of a kitten falling down - know that you're killing the Internet.
