Comcast: Video #1 Internet traffic driver

According to US multiplay telco Comcast, video was the number one traffic driver for its Internet customers in 2020, accounting for 71 per cent of all downstream traffic over its network, a growth of 70 per cent from 2019.

In analysing how its customers consumed video and entertainment in 2020, the biggest takeaway was that video, no matter how it’s being delivered and where it’s being watched, is more important to its customers than ever. “Across our entire entertainment portfolio, including Xfinity X1, Flex and the Stream app, our customers are engaging more with their chosen platform, watching about three hours more per week than they were before the pandemic started,” it says.
