Sandvine, a broadband networking company, reported that Amazon’s broadband usage during prime time over the past year has increased by 50 percent.

Netflix still owns the category, accounting for nearly 35 percent of the users streaming content during prime time hours in North America. And YouTube accounts for 14 percent of that same time period, but Amazon has gone from 1.61 percent from this time last year, up to 2.58 percent this year.

Sandvine provides updates about every six months on web data usage.

Unfortunately, this number doesn’t represent the number of movies or TV shows are downloaded in this time span, or how much time they spent using the services.
