Information technology behemoth Cisco recently released its Visual Networking Index (VNI) Forecast (2010-2015) report and well, the predictions aren’t all that surprising. In a nutshell, Cisco sees Internet traffic quadrupling by 2015, “reaching 966 exabytes per year.” It’s clear what’s behind this exponential growth: the proliferation of web-enabled devices coupled with the increased usage of high-bandwidth applications such as video, VoIP and streaming content. According to Nielsen, the average smartphone user is using 89% more data per month as compared to one year ago.
Increasing demand for Internet bandwidth has led carriers to implement tiered data plans to offset soaring costs. Verizon, for instance, recently announced their new tiered pricing schematic. So what to do in order to avoid overage fees and have a more carefree online experience?
Boingo, baby. But you already knew that. 🙂
