Top 10 countries using BitTorrent
The following pie chart shows the top ten countries using the BitTorrent protocol. Statistics from the top four countries are fairly consistent over many long periods of time. These are all English-speaking countries leading by the United States (US, 22%) and following by Great Britain (GB, 11%) in terms of total BitTorrent traffic. The number of peers from the United States is almost double those from Great Britain. Australia (AU) and Canada (CA) share about the same proportion of peers (10%), slightly less than Great Britain. Peers from the top four countries account for more than half the BitTorrent world traffic which explain why English is the language of the Internet and almost double the number of peers from the rest of the world combined.
