The author of this article examines the credibility of the statistic presented at the Next Generation Networks conference, that the peer-to-peer (P2P) traffic is already greater than 60 percent of all Internet traffic. According to Dave Passmore, one of the presenters, video will most likely come to the Internet as shared digital video disc files using P2P systems over broadband Internet access. Since the author is skeptical, he thought it would be interesting to find out how much P2P traffic really exists on the Internet.
