From CNN Money: Cisco sees the mobile future and it’s in streaming

GIGAOM — Cisco, the networking giant, has read the mobile data tea leaves again, and it predicts that this year the global population of mobile users will switch to streaming the majority of their content from “the cloud.” This will represent a shift from downloaded and sideloaded content on their devices to streamed content, such as Netflix movies or Pandora. If you want to know what that looks like, just check out the U.S. which currently hit the tipping point in 2011 with 54 percent of its traffic coming from “the cloud.”
