The data from Sandvine, revealed in Netflix’s quarterly earnings report, shows that Netflix’s share of North American traffic data has continued to grow, up from 35 percent of peak downloads in 2014.
Apple’s iTunes accounted for 3 percent of peak download traffic in 2015, finishing in a multi-way tie for fourth place with Amazon Video, BitTorrent, Hulu, and Facebook.
