NetFlix has been around for well more than a decade. Long ago, the service evolved past just a disc rental service into media streaming. Now, reports indicate streaming NetFlix data accounts for 20% of all US network activity during the 8pm – 10pm prime time window.

On the note of Internet traffic, America has long since been surpassed as the leading users of the network. Asia and Europe now dominate in both user base and through the fastest public networks.
