Australian traffic growth comes to a sudden stop, other sources report mixed results

The latest report from Australia shows while the number of broadband subscribers grew 12% between the quarters ending in December 2007 and June 2008, the total volume of Internet traffic actually declined slightly, statistics from Australia and Hong Kong. This follows a period of vigorous growth, yet growth that left Australian per-capita growth levels behind those of Western Europe, Japan, and US, and very far behind Hong Kong and Korea, the world champions in that category.

Hong Kong traffic growth has not come to a halt, but it is hard to tell the difference. From June 2007 to June 2008 growth was just 6%, statistics from Australia and Hong Kong.

TeleGeography recently released its annual international Internet traffic report, brief summary and link to report. From mid-2007 to mid-2008, international traffic grew 53%.
