Majority of Internet bandwidth consumed by P2P services

TechRepublic.com reports: "New research from German deep packet inspection gear maker Ipoque shows that P2P traffic consumes anywhere between 49 and 89 percent of all Internet traffic in the day. At night, it can spike up to an astonishing 95 percent. Ipoque gathered over three petabytes of information with the permission of ISPs and universities in Europe, the Middle East, and Australia between August and September this year."

The question is, will P2P kill the Internet? Or, will ISPs learn how to exploit it in some way to their advantage?

Remember: When the life gives you lemons, learn to make lemonade...
