Step aside: 6 billion new devices will connect to the internet in 2014

1 Comment

You’ll be battling for bandwidth with another 6.18 billion connected devices in 2014 according to research firm IHS(s ihs). And that’s just the tip of the iceberg: IHS expects another 19.42 billion devices will crave a connection between 2015 and 2017. Phones, tablets and computers will make up a large bulk of the total, but video game consoles and television sets are a growing segment, which will require faster broadband, fewer data caps and advanced in-home networks. Perhaps the estimate of 50 billion connected devices in 2020 by Ericsson’s(s eric) Hans Vestberg is too low?
