“The amount of data consumed each month by online video will more than quadruple between 2011 and 2016, from 10,000 petabytes last year to more than 45,000 petabytes in 2016. To put that in context, one petabyte is a million gigabytes. The entire written works of mankind to date runs to 50 petabytes. By 2016 we’ll have six million years of video crossing the internet every month.
“And…the share of data consumed by online video globally will rise from 51 percent to 55 percent by 2016.”
