New Internet Study Finds Web and Streaming Higher Than P2P Traffic

ipoque, a European deep packet inspection hardware provider has published an Internet study for 2008/2009 providing an overview of the Internet's current state based on analyzing 1.3 petabytes of Internet traffic — "the amount of data equal to 300,000 DVDs" — in eight regions of the world (Northern Africa, Southern Africa, South America, Middle East, Eastern Europe, Southern Europe, Southwestern Europe, Germany).

The study includes the use of about 100 of the most popular Internet protocols including P2P, VoIP, media streaming, instant messaging.

Some of the key findings of the study are:

  • P2P generates most traffic in all regions
  • The proportion of P2P traffic has decreased
  • BitTorrent is still number one of all protocols, HTTP second
  • The proportion of eDonkey is much lower than last year
  • File hosting has considerably grown in popularity
  • Streaming is taking over P2P users for video content
  • Usenet, a file sharing alternative for P2P, appears in the
    statistics for the first time

In all regions from South America, BitTorrent was found to be the dominating protocol followed by HTTP. In South America, Ares, another P2P protocol, leads the pack before BitTorrent and eDonkey.
