Video Is Expected To Make Up 84 Percent Of Internet Traffic By 2018

TheStreet (June 10, 2014) — Internet traffic will be fueled by video over the next few years, according to a new report from Cisco Systems. The report forecasts that video will grow to 84% of internet traffic in the United States by 2018. Video traffic currently makes up 78% of internet traffic in the United States. The internet traffic to watch World Cup related video is anticipated to generate three times the amount of monthly total internet traffic in Brazil, this year's cup host. According to the report released Tuesday, by 2018 the global internet traffic a month will equal 8.8 billion screens streaming the World Cup at the same time or about 5.5 million people binge watching Game of Thrones season four.

Quadriga: Worldwide Web Free Internet in Danger?

Quadriga: Worldwide Web Free Internet in Danger?

Deutsche Welle (Dec. 6, 2012) — Up to now, the Internet has enabled millions of people to access information and express their opinion. Now, China and Russia are pushing for states to have a greater say over the World Wide Web at the UN telecom's conference in Dubai. Could this mean an end to the Internet as we know it? UN member states are set to review Internet regulations at the conference, which kicked off in the United Arab Emirates on Monday. User data has been administered by private organizations up to now. But Moscow has put forward a proposal saying member states should have equal rights to manage the Internet. Data protectionists and human rights campaigners fear greater curbs on cyber freedoms in authoritarian countries. And Europe is pressing for a new Internet tax to target the Web's largest content providers, including Google, Facebook and Apple. Under the proposals, the companies would have to pay a fee to send data along telecom operators' networks outside the US.

Google Takes First Step in Giving Europeans Right to Be Forgotten

TheStreet (May 30, 2014) — Europeans unhappy with Google search results about themselves can now apply to have the links removed. In its first step to comply with a European Commission ruling earlier this month that people have the "right to be forgotten" over the Internet, Google has created an online form for requesting that links be erased from search results. The ruling states that Europeans can ask Google to stop linking to anything that's "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant, or excessive in relation to the purposes for which they were processed." Citizens can appeal to Google on behalf of others as well. Video provided by TheStreet
