“Online gaming is ‘the biggest threat to internet bandwidth’ these next few weeks.”
The tweet from the actor went viral, with over 44,000 likes and more than 7,000 retweets.
But, as plenty of people who replied to the tweet pointed out, video games aren’t the biggest offender when it comes to hogging bandwidth.
Far from it, with TV and movie streaming services using on average much more bandwidth.
One of those who pointed this out was video game journalist Mike Futter who replied: “This is absurd. Here’s some actual data.”
Futter linked to an article from ABC.net.au which compared the average hourly bandwidth usage of video games to movie and TV streaming services.
