ISP slow down your connection? Dude, stop with the Mad Men and Quentin Tarintino. A report conducted by Sandvine, a networking company, found that Netflix is the single largest source of Internet traffic in North America. Wait – are there even cat videos on Netflix?

Netflix accounts for nearly 30 percent of all downstream traffic, up 9 percent from last year. Normal websites account for 18 percent, BitTorrent accounts for 11 percent, and YouTube accounts for 10 percent. Hmm, I guess it’s possible to get sick of Rebecca Black.
