NZ Internet Growth

New Zealand’s internet traffic is predicted to grow almost threefold by 2018.

This will mostly be driven by a sharp jump in the amount of television, movie and video content being watched online.

Also the growing “Internet of Things” will contribute to this growth. I saw a Wi-Fi enabled heat pump advertised the other day – so that you can turn it on remotely from anywhere and come home to a warm house.

Internet connected TVs are expected to be around 16% of the 32 million connected devices by 2018.

Wow, think about that – 32 million devices is around 7 connected devices for every single person in the country! What will your 7 be?
