Excuse me Sir, an honest question: Are you in love with the company?

Not an important question, ask him on his wall, not the thread please. 

Sorry.

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

All that gets logged by the places you visit and other connection/session state tracking systems.

so if you open your browser and create 2 separate tabs, one idling on some youtube video, the other on facebook, where do you sum up your time of internet usage?

how about those maniacs that leave chrome open with approximately 85 tabs?

Yes, that all gets tracked.  When you access a web page, you create an open session with time stamps.  If you click away from that page, open a new page in the same window/tab or close your tab/window/browser, the time stamps are updated and/or your session closes.  So multiple open web sites will get counted.  They don't differentiate which pages you have in focus and which you have in the background.

Confirmed Sony has the most inefficient patch system :p
Anyway not surprising with PS Vue, PS Now, Spotify, movie and game downloads. Or is it just downloads? It says PS download 2.7%.

In our house hold streaming takes up most of the bandwidth as in most others I assume. Netflix and You tube are on every day. This month we're already up to 304 GB, got to conserve soon as we're capped at 500 a month. We're not even streaming 4K, just regular 1080p and lower. There were quite a few big patches this month. See, it's Sony's fault after all.



digital games stores... and online play.... I guess Sony is doing alright on that front.

You can do that on Firefox too ya know. No need to sell your soul to google!

The web sites themselves, analytics (such as Google), ISPs, back haul carries, Internet router manufacturers etc....  It's not personal information but rather generic info (browser, OS, protocols).
