Mobile Data Traffic from PC Modems and Routers Will Increase Fourfold by 2014

In 2010, users will send and receive 2,000 petabytes of data; by 2014, it will hit 8,000 petabytes.

ABI Research: New research shows that data traffic to and from PC modems and routers will reach 2,000 petabytes this year, quadrupling to 8,000 petabytes by 2014.

But ABI says the increase isn't due to smartphones. “This research continues to demonstrate devices such as modems and routers are driving the majority of mobile data traffic,” notes ABI's Senior Analyst Jeff Orr. “It’s not smartphones, nor computers with embedded radios. Versatile, aftermarket modem products are really driving mobile data traffic on the world’s networks.”
