Cisco published the results of its Visual Networking Index Forecast today, and it looks like our ever increasing hunger for bandwidth isn't gonna stop anytime soon. The network gear maker is predicting that the world's Internet users will eat up 56 exabytes per month in 2013. That's about five times of what we consume now. A lot of this growth is driven by online video. In fact, online video sites will eventually become the single biggest cause for bandwidth consumption. They will take the reign from, you guessed it, file sharing networks, which are currently still dominating global IP traffic. P2P will continue to grow, but not as the same pace as online video, which will dominate by 2011
