P2P services slashed
Adjust font size:

During the 2007 China Internet Conference, a senior official from the Ministry of Information Industry (MII) accused peer-to-peer (P2P) downloading of occupying too much of the Internet bandwidth, making it impossible to launch other new Internet services.

Han Xia, Deputy Director of Telecommunications Administration Bureau under MII, pointed out that many problems have appeared during the growth of Chinese internet industry. In Han's opinion, P2P downloading is one of the most serious problems.

Although the number of Chinese broad brand users is below the world's average level, the P2P fluxes in China are 3 to 4 times of those in the US. According to statistics from Chinese Internet service providers, P2P downloading accounts for 35 to 60 percent of the whole fluxes in the day and 50 to 90 percent during the night. For Chinese users, the Internet is used mainly for downloading movies and music.
