Following recent media articles making mention of "the Netflix effect"
and broadband slowdowns at peak times, we've had a number of requests
to see if we could pull together some facts from NZ ISPs detailing
what they are actually seeing.
So the question is...
How much Netflix/SVOD traffic are you seeing, either as a direct
measurement or percentage of total traffic.
Does this percentage change at all during the day/week.
I realise that this may be considered commercially sensitive but I'm
sure we can find a way to make it work.
If you're happy to give number on the list that would be great. Good
on you for sharing.
If you're not comfortable with that then drop me a line and we can
discuss how you might feel more comfortable about sharing the facts.
I'm happy to agree to only give an aggregated number from people who
contact me privately for eg "ISPs are seeing between X and Y % SVOD
Or you could just tell me and I'll keep it to myself (not quite as
helpful but I can use it for context).
You could also tell me "we have no way of knowing" and I guess that's
a data point too :).
