Press release from: ipoque GmbH

The 2007 P2P survey shows the continuing relevance of P2P and the growing popularity of new applications like Skype, Joost and media streaming.

Leipzig, Germany, August 30, 2007 – On invitation by MIT Technology Review, ipoque will present the results of its 2007 survey on the usage of P2P file sharing networks at the Emerging Technology Conference. The survey is due to be released in September. While the 2006 survey largely focused on file sharing networks, the 2007 edition will include statistics about novel applications such as Skype, Joost, media streaming and one-click hosting.

Preliminary results show P2P traffic still ranging between 50% up to 90% of all Internet traffic. The 2006 survey saw BitTorrent slowly surpassing eDonkey as the most popular P2P network. This trend has continued. BitTorrent has become the globally dominating P2P protocol with a share of 50-75% of all P2P traffic. eDonkey exhibits a regionally varying popularity with shares between 5-50% of all P2P. In certain regions, other protocols have gained a significant importance. In the Baltic States, for instance, DirectConnect has a proportion of about 30% of P2P.

As P2P continues to dominate, other applications have risen in popularity. While Joost does not yet cause the traffic volume many Internet providers fear, Skype, although being a low-bandwidth application, generates up to 2% of the overall traffic in certain networks. Media streaming services, such as YouTube, and one-click file hosting services, like Rapidshare and Megaupload, which provide direct download links as a means to distribute content using ad-financed Web server farms, have also seen a huge popularity surge. Details will be published with release of the 2007 survey.

ipoque's 2006 P2P survey provided the globally first statistics about the exchanged content in file sharing networks. Detailed data acquisition and analysis was conducted by ipoque for the eDonkey and BitTorrent networks. The results showed, for instance, a 20% and 30% share of pornographic content in for BitTorrent respectively eDonkey and confirmed that many current audio, ebook and movie titles are exchanged.
