 In May 2013, Cisco released the Cisco VNI Global IP Traffic Forecast, 2012 – 2017, according to which- by 2017, there will be 3.6 billion global Internet users, up from 2.3 billion global Internet users in 2012; 19 billion networked devices globally, up from 12 billion networked devices in 2012; average global broadband speed will grow 3.5-fold, from 11.3 Mbps (2012) to 39 Mbps (2017); global IP traffic will reach an annual run rate of 1.4 zettabytes, up from 523 exabytes in 2012.
