Too much data expected?

An internet of billions of devices requiring feedback will lead to data congestion for sure.

I dunno, I don't think that i want my refrigerator to be the central Hub in my home. But who knows? It may win the battle with my toaster, my laptop, and my Apple TV!

Interesting thought, I often used to think that millions of users downloading videos would cause that, much to my surprise I have better bandwidth now than when I first thought this. The billions of devices will likely have very low bandwidth requirements individually so what's worse? 1 billion devices at 1kbs against 100 million video downloaders at 10Mbps?

I could imagine video rates for each device for better interaction, but maybe that's still ok?

I was thinking the data per IoT device accumulated total would be lots of data to keep track of somewhere.

I think IoT devices would tend to mostly provide info that the owner would store and if they decide to upload it to a web page that would be separate. Even then it is stilll stored locally by the owner.

That's definitely more practical for sure :) !
