Everyone says that everything moves fast on the Internet, but just how fast are we talking about here? How much data gets shared across the Internet? While you calculate that in your head, take note that we are talking about emails, status posts, tweets and retweets, the downloading of apps and uploading of vacation pictures, streaming of online videos and music, online transactions and the list goes on.

So what happens in an Internet minute? Well, folks at Intel did some number crunching and came up with a figure that describes what happens in sixty seconds on the Internet — 639,800 GB of global IP data gets transferred, that’s what. Below is an infographic to show you a breakdown of what contributes to more than half a million gigabytes of information being transferred all across the world every minute through the power of communication technology.
