Abstract
In this paper we describe a systematic study on long-term evolution of

residential broadband Internet traffic covering 5 calendar years from June 2007 to

May 2011. The traffic evolution is characterized both in the term of the total traffic

volume, as well as the traffic volumes and shares for different application categories

(file sharing, video streaming etc.), with the focus on comparing the traffic on the per

IP user basis and among different broadband subscription groups. The results show

that the average daily total traffic generated by each private end user increased only

by about 33 % during the past 5 years. Further, the results show that the P2P filesharing

In this paper we describe a systematic study on long-term evolution of

residential broadband Internet traffic covering 5 calendar years from June 2007 to

volume, as well as the traffic volumes and shares for different application categories

(file sharing, video streaming etc.), with the focus on comparing the traffic on the per

IP user basis and among different broadband subscription groups. The results show

that the average daily total traffic generated by each private end user increased only

by about 33 % during the past 5 years. Further, the results show that the P2P filesharing

has been dominating the network total traffic, but the daily file-sharing

traffic volume per end user largely remains the same. Also, the daily streamingmedia

traffic volume per end user has increased dramatically by over 500% during

the studied period of time. In the meantime, the daily web-browsing traffic volume

per end user has increased by about 300%. Finally, a further investigation among 4

different FTTH broadband subscription groups with 1, 10 , 30, and 100 Mbit/s

symmetric access speeds shows that the lower the access speed, the more diversified

the end user traffic tend to be. (Less)
