How much internet traffic did you generate today? Perhaps more than you realise given the increasing popularity of streaming audio or video content, “cloud” data storage, and social media. It is estimated that approximately 1 zettabyte (1021 bytes) of internet traffic was transmitted globally last year,1 which is the equivalent of about 360MB per day per person in the world.
