The average broadband subscriber in the world generates 11.4 Gigabytes of traffic per month, and the top one percent of users generate over 20 percent of the global internet traffic. These and other interesting insights can be found in the new Usage study of the Cisco Visual Networking Index. Compiled in coordination with over 20 service providers around the world, the VNI Usage program takes a snapshot view of current traffic patterns existing in the network today as a complement to the VNI Forecast program which details forward looking trends over the next half decade.
This new study, focused on actual network traffic, complements the Cisco VNI Forecast and Methodology, 2008-2013, which offers projections for future network growth. Updates to the usage data are planned for the future as a means to measure changes in overall traffic patterns.
