According to the ISP, the 1.2PB figure equates almost 16 years of high definition video content.

The number is nearly triple that of December 2012 during which data distribution amounted to about 435TB. In December 2011, it stood at about 100TB.

iiNet did not reveal the number of customers who use its CDN services.

The company uses its CDN to deliver unmetered content for its customers beyond monthly data quotas; done via iiNet TV with Fetch, Xbox Live, ABC iView, and more than 180 streamed radio stations and a number of commercial customers.
