Re: In just FIVE years?
What's more, the increasingly gaping maws of our collective demand for video will continue to suck up more and more and more substantial amounts of bandwidth (ambient video -- of all kinds -- especially, let alone OTT).

But, as mhh points out, more bandwidth is a lot more challenging to roll out than "more cloud."  For that reason, my vote went to cloud.

@mhh: Indeed!  Just look at how long (and how careful) the city-by-city Google Fiber rollouts have been -- and the difficult time Verizon has been having in Boston!

Data flows uphill -- to the cloud
I selected the cloud option in this poll because -- while, doubtlessly, those other choices will continue to make for substantial revenue streams indeed -- all of those bits of data from industrial IoT, video (OTT and otherwise), VR, and so on have to go somewhere!

Re: In just FIVE years?
I am aware of the slow progress.   But the need for bandwidth will be even more.    We're looking at 34 Billion iOT devices so I would humbly suggest that providers have to plan for it-=-and I view AT&T gradual rebuilt and increased bandwith rebuilding going on is trying to pre=empt the rise of Google.

I don't doubt bandwidth growth, but it's just not coming that fast. Fiber takes time to roll out.

Goog!e fiber will hardly be deployed in more than a handful of cities in the next five years. And the other ISPs aren't going to really be much better if they even match Google's fiber plans.

Not if google has anything to say about it--Bandwith growth is a reality.

For me, though, it is V/R simply because providers have to figure out a way to continue to entice the consumers to be more "interested".   What other way than V/R to do it.

In just FIVE years?
I seriously doubt that many ISPs will be rockin Gigabit speeds...?

Fiber deployments are going to take a bit longer than that to really roll out to widespread locations. Sure, a few cities here and there may have it... but.. the MOST revenue? no, sir-ee-bob.
