The 2019 Global Internet Phenomena Report is almost in the bag, so it is time to start the pre-report series of blogs where I "leak" data out from the report — we might even call this the "Hidden Cam Show," where I expose data for the whole world to see! The Internet Phenomena data this year is even more interesting than last year (at least to me) and...

I am working feverishly on the next Global Internet Phenomena Report! As I'm looking through the data, I thought that I would reach out and see if there are any requests for specific data to be featured in the report or the next spotlight?

In the Global Internet Phenomena report that will be released tomorrow, we give a conservative number that "more than 50% of the traffic on the internet is encrypted." In reality, the number is probably closer to 75-90% of the overall traffic, since some applications "usually" encrypt their data.

There is a new “streaming” service on the horizon that has the potential to change streaming patterns on networks worldwide. In the US, a new service has achieved cult status, and is rapidly moving into the mainstream as followers pile on behind it; that trend is connected fitness.

Last week, Amazon announced a raft of new products that leverage the Alexa service. I have Alexa devices all throughout my house (and even a Rova Viva in my car), and also have a number of Apple devices with Siri. So naturally, as I went through the Phenomena data, I was on the lookout for how both of those devices — as well as Google Home — were moving...

Previous editions of the Phenomena report noted a decrease in file sharing traffic as Netflix and other streaming services came online, making content available through legal means. Well, that dynamic is changing yet again....
