MyBroadband recently conducted its 2016 South African Online Piracy Survey, which showed that KickassTorrents and The Pirate Bay are the most popular torrent websites among local pirates.
The survey was completed by 2,385 IT professionals and tech-savvy South African broadband users.
The survey results showed that 65% of respondents have pirated movies, TV shows, and music over the last 12 months.
The survey also showed that 69% of pirates prefer to use BitTorrent for downloading content, followed by Usenet on 17%, and file hosting websites on 14%.
An interesting finding is that less than 20% of tech-savvy online pirates in South Africa are using a VPN or other methods to stay anonymous.
