Mobile data volumes to double every year

By
Cisco is forecasting the volume of mobile data traffic to more than double every year to 2014: a 39 fold growth rate from 2009.

According to Cisco, "Two major global trends are driving this increase: the proliferation of mobile-ready devices and widespread mobile video content consumption By 2014, there could be over five billion personal devices connecting to mobile networks - and billions more machine-to-machine nodes."

Mobile video is projected by the study to represent 66 percent of all mobile data traffic by 2014, increasing 66-fold from 2009 to 2014-the highest growth rate of any mobile data application tracked in the Cisco VNI Global Mobile Data Forecast.

As iTWire reported yesterday, YouTube is already said to account for 10 percent of mobile data traffic and the new Apple iPad is already reported to have "set off a new round of reports of networks overburdened by a data flow they were not built to handle."

According to Cisco, global mobile data traffic has increased by 160 percent over the past year to 90 petabytes per month and is growing today 2.4 times faster than global fixed broadband data traffic. Cisco expects Smart phones and laptop wireless dongles to account for more than 90 percent of global mobile traffic by 2014.

Cisco GIST users can run speed tests in less than 15 seconds and view their last 10 results in graphs (with comparisons to all global users).
