IDG News Service (San Francisco Bureau) — June 17 2014
The total amount of data handled by wireless carriers in the U.S. more than doubled in 2013, an increase driven in large part by video traffic.
U.S. carriers saw 3.2 exabytes of data traffic run across their networks, the CTIA said in its annual report on the U.S. wireless industry. An exabyte is 10x18 bytes or, put another way, a billion gigabytes.
