How the world will use the internet in 2015

Image representing Cisco as depicted in CrunchBaseCisco, one the world's biggest maker of networking gear predicts that in 2015

Internet traffic will quadruple and reach 80.5 exabytes per month (80 exabytes would fill 20 billion DVDs.

That year, for the first time, Asia will generate more traffic (24.1 exabytes per month) than North America (22.3 exabytes per month)—although Amercia still beats China (6.9 versus 5.6 exabytes per month).

Yet if traffic figures are divided by population, a somewhat different (and more meaningful) picture emerges: South Korea is and will be the world's most data-hungry country in Cisco's sample.

Even Canada and France (and, by 2015, Britain) will consume more gigabytes per month per person than America. As for China, it drops down the list and will be overtaken by Brazil, but remains way ahead of India.

Can't even imagine how much data an exabyte has...

I'm really surprised Japan isn't higher up on that list. That seems like their thing especially since they have some of the highest internet speeds in the world.

That's amazing.

It's crazy, I don't even think I've said, thought, looked at or seen enough images in my life to fill a exabyte.
