According to the article below, Netflix users are tying up 32% of the U.S. internet bandwidth.
It's no wonder the internet seems to be getting slower and slower!

The US only has a tiny sliver of bandwidth that they have in Europe. That is why they can stream tv and movies so much better than we can. Google was trying out some mega bandwidth, I really want to see how that turns out...until we get more bandwidth it WILL keep slowing down as more and more people get on.
