Cisco has recently released the Visual Networking Index (VNI) Global Mobile Traffic Forecast, 2017-2022.

The report predicts that mobile data will nearly reach the zettabyte (one trillion gigabytes) milestone by 2022, mobile traffic will represent 20 percent of global IP traffic, smartphones will exceed 90% share of total mobile data traffic and mobile video will account for 79% of mobile data traffic.

It also shares stats about the number of mobile users, number of mobile-ready devices and IoT connections, mobile network connection speed and anticipates:

With the emergence of 5G, it will account for 3% of mobile connections and nearly 12% (9.2 EBs/month) of global mobile data traffic.

  • 4G connections will grow 2-fold and will account for 54.3% of total mobile connections.
  • 4G traffic will grow 7-fold, CAGR of 46% and account for 70.7% of total mobile data traffic.
  • Other compelling figures include M2M connections, IOT growth as well as role and coverage of WIFI.
