Netflix’s bandwidth hunger

October 21, 2010

OK… do you think I was kidding when I said that NetFlix was the most dangerous media company on the planet?

Just look at their bandwidth consumption…. they are hogging a full 20% of bandwidth during peak hours!

Sure, bandwidth usage maybe does not correlate exactly with degrees of dangerousness (rhinos for example, consume very little bandwidth and yet I wouldn’t want to cross one). But it does illustrate the command the company has in the emerging content streaming market.
