Netflix is 32% of all download bandwidth ...

From MediaBeat:

Following several management blunders and disappointing third-quarter earnings, it’s nice to see Netflix get what could be interpreted as good news. According to the latest Sandvine Internet Phenomena Report, Netflix now creates 32% of peak downstream traffic -- making it the nation’s largest consumer of Internet bandwidth. For that honor, it beat out HTTP, YouTube and BitTorrent, which, along with Netflix, account for 64.4% of all network traffic nationwide, according to the report.
