Hi Frank,

This week we gave the European VNI reports to the EC, as they are heavily lobbied by mobiles.
The Cisco VNI for Mobile will be released Tuesday Feb 19, then merged into the annual report in the Fall. The Mobile data includes cellular and Wi-Fi, and fortifies our requests for more unlicensed spectrum. From the website you can get a slide for 5 year accuracy, which is about a 3 dB variation, not the 4.5 dB that SES/Intelsat claim (they claim Wi-Fi 5/6 GHz use will grow much more than anyone else's forecast ;-)

FCC 18-295 6 GHz unlicensed comments closed Friday, about 25 are posted and another 150+ comments will be posted Tuesday after the Monday federal holiday. Replies are due by March 18th. The fun has begun.

There's almost 5 billion internet users plus 28 billion internet connected devices like surveillance cameras, for a total of 33 billion users. So f a zetabyte is roughly 50 billion hi-def films, a zetabyte is a little bit more than one hi-def film per internet user.

Quite enough room to grow for a while of that a zetabyte per second, assuming I have the calculations right.

It probably doesn't take that much bandwidth, but I'm amused we're going back to the old model of offloaded remote computing with slightly smarter than dumb terminals as phones.

Cisco VNI over the last five years under forecast the actual traffic by nearly 10%.

Wi-Fi traffic is ~free. Hard to put a limit on free.

SuperBowl 53 Internet traffic was 24 PB, a new record

Stephen Hardy should get more comfortable with traffic carried.
