In Latin America, traffic will reach 230 petabytes per day in 2016 (about 1 GB flashdrives 241,172,480), which implies fired up about the 30 petabytes per day were consumed per day in 2011, according to forecasts prepared by The Cisco Visual Networking Index.

Monthly traffic in both reach 7 exabytes per month in 2016, equivalent to 2,000 million DVDs.

For that, the connection speeds will rise to an average of 12 Mbps by 2016, from 4.2 Mbps average recorded in 2011. According to the study, 35% of connections will be faster than 5 Mbps in four years, and 14% exceed 10 Mbps also expect lower prices, but that no details in the report.

According to Cisco, it is expected that by 2016 there 2,000 million Internet-connected computers in the region. Last year there were 984 million computers on the network.

Also, when more use, Internet traffic will reach 55 Tbps in 2016, equivalent to over 46 million people doing HD video streaming simultaneously.

The study is broken down for some countries, so we share the then available. Although not in Latin America, added in the table to Spain considering our readers in this country who are interested in information, in addition to the U.S., Western Europe and the world for being compared.

Argentina Chile Mexico Spain Western Europe U.S. The World
Average in 2011 3 Mbps 6.1 Mbps 3.7 Mbps 10.2 Mbps 11.1 Mbps 10.6 Mbps 9.1 Mbps
Average speed in 2016 8 Mbps 17 Mbps 10 Mbps 40 Mbps 42 Mbps 37 Mbps 34 Mbps
Monthly data traffic in 2011 102 Petabytes 91 PB PB 181 PB 735 7.3 Exabytes 9.2 Exabytes 30.7 Exabytes
Monthly data traffic in 2016 591 Petabytes 577 Petabytes 1.3 Exabytes 2.9 Exabytes 24.3 Exabytes 21.9 Exabytes 109.5 Exabytes

According to Cisco, the world will enter a “zettabyte era” in 2016, reaching a total annual traffic of 1.3 zettabytes data. Nets should carry some 12.5 petabytes of data every 5 minutes, which means a huge, huge amount of information, which leads us to wonder about the number of servers and improvements to be made to networks to move and store all this information .

Indeed, by 2016 it expects the number of devices connected to the world’s population tripled.
