Some interesting new stats from CISCO's annual Virtual Networking Index....the 2 that really jumped out at me though were:
- Globally, Online Music is expected to be the most highly penetrated
residential Internet service ―in 2011 there were 1.1 billion users (63
percent of residential Internet users); in 2016 there are forecast to be
1.8 billion users (79 percent of residential Internet users).
*Global File Sharing*
- By 2016, global peer-to-peer traffic is projected to account for 54
percent of global consumer Internet file sharing traffic, down from 77
percent in 2011. On a quantity basis, however, the amount of peer-to-peer
traffic is expected to increase from a rate of 4.6 exabytes per month in
2011 to 10 exabytes per month by 2016.
