BitTorrent still accounts for more than a quarter of upload traffic, which is substantially lower than download traffic, in part because of the its peer-to-peer design that sees users share parts of files with each other. Yet the file-sharing service now accounts for less than five per cent of total Internet traffic, down from 31 per cent in 2008. Despite data caps and small screens, audio and video streaming is also the biggest slice of mobile Internet traffic, accounting for 36.98 per cent of overall traffic at peak times. YouTube was the biggest contributor to mobile downloads, followed by Facebook and web browsing. Sandvine provides traffic management services to more than 250 Internet providers around the world, and regularly compiles the traffic data from its customers into reports.
