The world population after four years will be around 400 million, and out of it, mobile video will denote about 69% of international mobile traffic. It is a massive surge as compared to 53% in the current year as reported by Cisco, covered by Business Insider.
In the Middle Eastern nations, as well as, in African nations, the rates for mobile revenue will increase the maximum. These regions have recorded their mobile data traffic by more than 100% surge in 2013.
4G will have greater coverage over geographical regions in the next four year cycle. The 4G customer also uses more of data. It is also estimated in reports that 4G will be about 15% of total mobile connections and more and more people will be using 4G. In fact, the mobile traffic will be 51% from 4G connections in 2018.

In 2018, it will have increased almost 11 times than in 2013 as data traffic will reach 190 Exabyte’s per year, extremely enormous size of data. That’s the size of approximate four trillion videos or 42 trillion pictures sent or received from mobile phones. That’s extremely massive!
