In 2022, the total traffic volume at DE-CIX Internet Exchanges was more 48 exabytes. This is equivalent to the storage capacity of more than 370 million smartphones, each with 128 GB of storage space. The total data throughput increased over 25% from 2021 – back then the volume would only have filled 300 million phones.
Not only is our global footprint expanding to new locations, but traffic continues to grow at the largest Internet Exchanges: in 2022 Frankfurt had a peak of 14.4 Terabits per second (Tbps), New York 1.32 Tbps and Madrid broke through the 1 Tbps line for the first time.
