Video Sucking Up Mobile Data Traffic

A report from telecommunications equipment and services provider Ericcson, points to a dramatic trend that really should surprise no-one: mobile data traffic is estimated to have doubled since the same time last year. The main source of all this data flying around is streaming video; people watching stuff on their phones and tablets. Further, Ericcson estimates that this is just the beginning, and that we should continue to see big jumps in mobile traffic in the next few years (they indicate a 12-fold increase by 2018 over 2012 levels).
