Netflix still accounts for one third of all U.S. Internet traffic According to Sandvine, the broadband servicing company that tracks traffic, Netflix continues to account for one third of U.S. Internet traffic, and nobody else is even close.
Netflix's share of "prime-time downstream traffic delivered over 'fixed networks'" was 32.5 percent in the most recent report, down marginally from 33 percent in November.

Amazon dropped from 1.75 percent to 1.31 percent and HBO dropped from 0.5 percent to just 0.34 percent. Hulu saw growth, from 1.1 percent to 2.41 percent.

While Netflix is dominant over home networks and Wi-Fi, on mobile devices YouTube remains king. If you are watching a video on your phone, there is a pretty good chance it's on YouTube, says Sandvine.
