Peer-to-peer file sharing service BitTorrent, and little brother uTorrent, have now been downloaded more than two billion times on various platforms. Last year the network accounted for 3% of all downstream, and 28% of all upstream, traffic across the internet.
The company attributes the figures to the “longstanding popularity of its classic desktop torrent clients, as well as its new web-based torrent downloader and player built for the streaming age”. It said the Android version of the service on Google (NASDAQ:) Play Store is the “most popular torrent downloader”.
