Australian internet users on a data download frenzy

Australians downloaded data on the internet at a breakneck pace last year even as the total number of subscribers neared saturation point, a trend that is only likely to grow as the country’s broadband network is upgraded.Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics out on Tuesday showed the amount of data downloaded jumped by a third in the three months to December, compared to the three months to June. Downloads amounted to 550,000 terabytes of data in the final quarter of 2012, up no less than 60 percent from the same period in 2011.
