Video streaming accounted for more than 47.37% of the total peak period traffic in fixed access in the U.S. In the mobile space, the peak period aggregate traffic share of top video streaming services is 39.43%, with YouTube holding most of the traffic. This trend is equally visible in Europe, where services like NetFlix or Amazon Video are not that popular.
When real-time entertainment ruled the internet traffic in both North America and Europe, file-sharing traffic share continued to slide. However, the traffic volume of file-sharing services increased over the period. In the U.S. file-sharing traffic share has decreased from 19.20% in 2010 to 12.00% in 2012. Among the file-sharing services, BitTorrent is leading with 10.3% stake of the total traffic in the U.S. In the Europe, file-sharing traffic share is higher than 18.88%."
