For lack of a better expression, the graphic below and short article that accompanied it about internet traffic growth shocked me. I’ve read some interesting statistics recently about where and when the actual internet usage is occurring. By device type, by time period, etc. Most articles point to the increased use of smart phones, other always on devices like tablets connecting to the internet, and then the continued online gaming and other streaming of videos/movies/music as the main “culprits”. An example is the explosive effect that Netflix stream has on primetime nightly internet traffic. But reading that Cisco is expecting a quadrupling in internet traffic over the next 4 years still floors me.
