The article reports that peer-to-peer web traffic will increased almost 400 percent until 2014. It could be bad news for broadband service providers such as Comcast that have been at war with P2P traffic-generating startups such as BitTorrent. P2P traffic is now responsible for 44 percent of all consumer traffic on the Internet and 33 percent in North America, according to researcher MultiMedia Intelligence. The researcher expects legal P2P traffic to grow ten times as fast as illegal P2P traffic.
