The 'Online Colleges' Internet Study Explains a Rise in Usage

The 'Online Colleges' Internet infographic looks at the increase in the use of bandwidth caused by students' mobile devices.

This seems to be a rising problem for college campuses, as many students not only bring a cell phone to school, but tote iPads, laptops and even game consoles as well. In fact, 41 percent of students have three or more devices hooked to the Internet at one time, and 71 percent of those students have indicated that the overload has impacted their networks and reduced surfing speed.

Tablets consume about 89.5 percent of bandwidth, while smart-phones eat up 85.6 percent, followed by iPods at 76.4 percent. As technology continues to advance, people will continue to purchase more and more devices. One can only hope that with time, methods of Internet access will also improve to accommodate the large demand.
