In 2016, IT professionals and web developers alike were astounded at the growth of the mobile web. People were downloading mobile data at a year-over-year growth rate of 125 percent — accounting for a total of 10 billion gigabytes of downloads in a single year — which equaled out to an average of over 31 gigabytes per person in the US.
By 2020, Zenith forecasts that people will consume 28 percent of all media via mobile internet, and this could be an underestimate because of 5G. Qualcomm has a prototype 5G modem chip, and if any of the major players in the 5G race are able to get their networks up and running in 2019, as is predicted, phones with 5G Qualcomm chips will be able to receive data at speeds up to 1 gigabit per second.
There will be an unprecedented amount of data zipping to and from mobile phones in 2019. To stay on top of what this means for businesses and individuals, consider the following.
1. Corporate Security Risks Will Increase
2. Analytics Will Capture Tremendous Value
3. Google’s AI Will Help Small Businesses
