    Worst case scenario

    Pandora could have only 3571 users per month. That is all it would take to account for all the 108Million minutes down loaded per month.

    • Erm, you need a reply.

      O.k. I'll give it a shot.

      First off, there are approximately 43,200 minutes in a month (30 days x 24 hours x 60 minutes).

      Based on your math, the 3571 users would be listening to Pandora every day, 24/7.

      But that isn't what is happening. According to Pandora's quarterly report, there are 36,000,000 active listeners (and over 100,000,000 members):

      Pandora said total listener hours rose 125 percent in the quarter to 1.8 billion, giving the service an estimated share of total US radio listening of 3.6 percent, up from 1.8 percent a year ago.

      Pandora, founded in 2000, announced last month that it has 100 million registered users in the United States and 36 million monthly active users.

      • eACH SO CALLED USER LISTENS LESS THAN 1 MINUTE PER MONTH. READ BELOW:
        DON'T YOU THINK 3,571 PEOPLE OUT OF 37 MILLION COULD BE LEAVING THEIR PANDORA RUNNING 24/7 USING THEIR UNLIMITED INTERNET? I THINK THERE COULD BE.


        1.8 listening hours per QUARTER = 108 million Minutes per QUARTER

        108M minutes divided by 3 (months) = 36M minutes per month.

        36 million minutes per month / 37 million active users = .97 minutes listened each month.
        ------------------------------------------
        Now consider some people will let PANDORA play in the background 24/7

        It would only take 3,571 people playing PANDORA around the clock (in the background..... not EVEN listening to account for all minutes.
