An online video streaming service is attracting more online traffic than any other website.

A new report by broadband analysts says people watching videos streamed through Netflix accounts for up to 30 percent of all Internet bandwidth use. Six months ago, Netflix accounted for 20 percent of all online traffic.

The increase suggests that more people are using their laptops, gaming systems and smartphones to download and watch movies and TV shows.
