There's going to be a lot of "connected" machinery that's not the personal property of a user and that won't hog as much bandwidth as a user uploading videos or playing ARFPS games. Surveillance cameras in every public space, an RFID scanner in every shopping cart and every manufacturing station, "smart meters" for electricity, water, and gas, every nuclear power is going to need new SELinux uranium centrifuges of course, and probably towns on tight budgets are going to use a Tire Pressure Monitoring System-based scanner on every block and every parking space to catch any fineable traffic or parking infraction. 15 billion is on the low side, I tell you.
