Mobile Data Usage To Reach 52 Million Terabytes This Year - Joshua Bolkan, THE Journal

Mobile data usage will increase 59 percent this year over last to reach 52 million terabytes, according to a new report from market research firm Gartner. The company predicts that growth will continue through 2018, when mobile data usage will reach an estimated 173 million TB. "Mobile data traffic is soaring worldwide, more than tripling by 2018," said Jessica Ekholm, research director at Gartner, in a prepared statement. "The results also showed that YouTube is increasingly being used to stream video for longer periods of time, rather than just for 'snacking'," added Ekholm, with only a small difference in the percentage of users who report watching YouTube in chunks of five minutes or less and those who reported watching it for 30 minutes or more at a time.
