Submission + - Google Now 25% of the Internet (wired.com)

sturgeon writes: Wired Magazine claims today that Google is 25% of the Internet with a mostly unreported (and rapidly expanding), massive deployment of edge caching servers in almost every Internet provider around the world. Whether users are directly using a Google service (i.e. search, YouTube) or the devices are automatically sending data (e.g. Google Analytics, updates), the majority of end devices around the world will now send traffic to Google server during the course of an average day. It looks like Wired based their story on a report from cloud analytics and network management company DeepField at http://www.deepfield.net/2013/07/google-sets-new-internet-record.
