UK ISP: Netflix traffic beats YouTube during peak hours

2 Comments

Netflix has seen its traffic grow “at an incredible rate” since launching in the UK two years ago, according to local ISP Plusnet, whose Senior Product Specialist Dave Tomlinson detailed Netflix’s traffic patterns in a blog post Thursday. YouTube video streams still amount for more overall traffic on Plusnet’s network, according to Tomlinson, but Netflix sees a much higher spike in the afternoon and evening. That’s a good sign for Netflix’s international expansion: The streaming service is set to launch in six additional European countries next month.
