Global Broadband Use To Increase Fourfold By 2016?

Cisco is projecting that the world will generate roughly 110 exabytes of data per month by 2016. Feel free to insert your own "and that's just the porn..." jokes here. wink

We’re on pace to generate 1.3 zettabytes of data in 2016, about four times more than we create today, according to the latest data out from Cisco. To put that in perspective, Cisco helpfully tells us that’s more than 38 million DVDs streamed in an hour. Or, you can think of it as a 1 followed by 21 zeros.
