According to the insights which have been released onto the official PornHub Insights website, the site which is placed in the top 50 sites in global Alexa rankings transferred a staggering 6,597 petabytes worth of data. That number is further broken down to a ridiculous 18,073 terabytes per day, and an even more ridiculous 753,041 gigabytes per hour, and finally 209 gigabytes of data per second.

The info-graphic also indicates that the website had 42 billion website visits over the course of the year, with the United States easily being the country with the most visits. The total website visits number equates to 115 million visits per day. We also learn that 6.83 million videos uploaded, bringing 1.36 million hours of new content to watch. PornHub says, "If you started watching 2019's new videos in 1850, you would still be watching them today". To bring it back to the previous paragraph where all the data transfer is mentioned, PornHub says "If you copied all that data onto hard drives they would reach 100km high to the edge of space."

Jak joined the TweakTown team in 2017 and has since reviewed 100s of new tech products and kept us informed daily on the latest science and space news. Jak's love for science, space, and technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
