Lanter, Amy, Information Management Journal
Global mobile data traffic grew 2.3-fold in 2011, more than doubling for the fourth year in a row, according to the "Cisco® Visual Networking Index (VNI) Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update."
The report also showed that last year's mobile data traffic was eight times that of the entire global Internet in 2000.
Here are various milestones Cisco® is predicting:
* The number of mobile-connected devices will exceed the world's population in 2012.
* More than 100 million smartphone users will use more than 1 GB per month in 2012.
* Monthly global mobile data traffic will surpass 10 exabytes (approximately 10 billion gigabytes) in 2016.
