2014 Monthly Data Traffic to Exceed Total for 2008
ABI Research released a report that shows data traffic will continue to grow through 2014. The report said that the volume of mobile data sent and received every month by users around the world will exceed by a significant amount the total data traffic for all of 2008.
“When people think of mobile data, they think of BlackBerry and iPhone handsets, but the bulk of today’s traffic is generated by laptops with PC Card and USB modems,” ” says senior ABI analyst Jeff Orr in a press release.While add-on cellular modems represented two-thirds of traffic in 2008, computers with embedded 3G/4G modems will lead in 2014 with more than 50 percent of the world’s mobile data traffic.The report also found that global mobile data traffic surpassed 1.3 Exabytes transferred during 2008. By 2014, an average of 1.6 Exabytes will be sent and received monthly. Also, nearly 74 percent of the world’s mobile data traffic will be from Web and Internet access by 2014. By the same time, 26 percent will come from audio and video streaming. Peer-to-peer file sharing and VoIP contribution to overall mobile data traffic will be less than 1 percent.
“The launch of 4G services promises even more data capability ... as network coverage and service plans satisfy market expectations, a variety of specialized consumer electronics devices with the ability to connect anywhere will emerge,” Orr stated.
