Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space.

Let $(x_n)_{n\in\mathbb N}$ be a geodesic ray: $d(x_n,x_m)=\vert n-m\vert$. Is it true that, for all $y\in G$, the sequence $d(x_{n+1},y)-d(x_n,y)$ converges to 1 as $n$ goes to infinity ?

I am particularly interested in the case of $\delta$-hyperbolic spaces. A positive answer to the above quetion would imply that any geodesic ray converges to a Busemann function (or horofunction).

More generally, is anything known about Busemann functions on hyperbolic spaces ? In particular, how do the Busemann compactification relates to the visual boundary ? These two boundaries are the same for CAT(0) spaces, but need not be in general, as shown by the example $\mathbb Z\times \mathbb Z/2\mathbb Z$, with obvious generating set.
