Nearly One-Fifth of the U.S. Can’t Watch Online HD Video

Wistia has published a report on the state of streaming HD video in the US. The report finds that approximately 18% of all consumers can’t watch streaming videos due to low bandwidth and the constant distraction of buffering.

People that fall into this category could include anyone from consumers that live in rural areas without broadband to employees working in a metropolitan area, but the company’s network is stretched too thin for high definition video streaming.
