hmm, seems to be a bit of a misleading title. Makes it sound like 15% of internet users use Netflix or that 15% of time spent on the internet is on Netflix or something but the stats are only for mbs of data which is completely different. It would be nice if things could be labelled accurately rather than twisted to make things sound better or worse than they actually are, but with humanity the way it is there's not much chance of that ever happening

I don't really find it misleading, but I understand what you're saying.  It would be interesting to also see the stats for what websites get significant amounts of  people's time, rather than just amount of data use. Obviously, data use is going to skew towards data-intensive activities like streaming video and downloading gigantic video game files.

how would you measure that? by self reporting?

 

"I swear, I totally didn't spend 2 hours on youPr0n yesterday" :D

 

Once the data is loaded, no one can tell how long of your personal time you spend looking at whatever website. It has to be measured by volume of data being transfered
