CHART: Mobile Now Accounts For 12 per cent Of Global Internet Traffic

Mobile is driving more and more global internet traffic. According to StatCounter, mobile is now 12 per cent of global internet traffic, up from 7 per cent a year prior. At the beginning of 2009, mobile was only 1 per cent of global internet traffic.
