While the internet’s huge growth spurts have largely slowed down, huge growth is still being experienced globally from people accessing the internet from their mobile phones.
Mary Meeker, investor at Kleiner Perkins and Internet analyst, presented the 2014 edition of her annual trends report, featuring data from various sources gathered by Meeker and her team, at the Code Conference in the United States.
The total number of Internet users in the world is growing less than 10 percent per year and slowing.
But Mobile Data traffic is up 81 percent with accelerating growth, driven in part by video.
Smartphones are the most used platforms everywhere, including Nigeria.
Meeker observed that the percent of page views coming from mobile phones in May 2014 was 25 percent, compared to 14 percent in May 2013.
And mobile share of online video time spent is now 22 percent, double what it was last year.
