Cisco VNI Video Viewing on the rise in MEA

81% of all internet traffic by 2021 in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region will be attributed to video, according to Cisco’s latest forecast.

In 2016, Internet video accounted for 62% of MEA’s internet traffic, however, only 21% of the total population were internet users.

According to a prediction by Cisco in its Visual Networking Index (VNI) forecast, internet usage will rise to only 28% of the population.
