According to Sandvine’s Global Internet Phenomena Report, video applications such as BitTorrent, YouTube, and Netflix, take up the biggest percentage of Web traffic, with YouTube’s share increasing to 17.11 percent from 13.8 percent a year ago. While the reason behind the huge traffic spike is because of the size video data, it is also because the demand for video on wireline and wireless networks has increased. This also brings a larger challenge to ISPs to boost revenue and meet the challenges caused by the hike in video demand.
