    Increasing demand for video on mobile devices will push broadband networks to their limits, according to a Bell Labs study that predicts users will access seven hours of video content daily by 2020. That's nearly a doubling, given today's 4.8 hours of use. A driving factor is the amount of available video content, which is expected to jump by a factor of 12 in the same time frame.
