Mobile Data 'to Explode' in SA - Cisco

South Africans complain about high data costs and the price of mobile devices, but despite that, the Internet is set to grow exponentially, Cisco report finds

According to a study by Cisco, South Africans complain about high data costs and the price of mobile devices, but despite that, the Internet is set to grow exponentially.

The company points out that, "Cisco's Visual Networking Index (VNI) reveals interesting growth figures and projects that mobile data traffic in South Africa will increase nearly eight-fold over the next five years and grow twice as fast as fixed IP traffic in South Africa."

It says that fixed line broadband access is regarded as limiting because of the expense related to laying down cable as well as the incumbent operator Telkom which has a virtual monopoly on the hardware.
