This is a traffic projection made by Larry Roberts, one of the creators of ARPAnet in 1992. In 1992 the traffic being carried by the NSF backbone was not even forecast. He projected that video conferencing and video on demand would not be appreciable until 2005. Furthermore, email would not be very large until 2020 to rival voice traffic. Internet 2.0 is upsetting everyone's forecasts.
