broadband usage

Found 1st Dec 2017
What would be a heavy monthly usage for home broadband. I googled it but could only find a report from 2010 which said only 5% use 300gb or more

Thanks...

Jesus, how?
We were using around 500GB a month which the man from Virgin described as heavy
Most games are hitting plus 20GB now so hitting a couple of TB per month is quite common.

That would be 100 games per month.

I know games are often pretty short these days, but three new games a day? Even for a household that's excessive. Games are big single downloads, but not huge amounts of data overall.


People who watch most of their TV from internet streams can use a lot of data. For example Netflix says 3GB an hour for HD, 7GB an hour for UHD.

Assuming a 70/30 split and 9 hours a day (2 devices used for 4.5 hours or 3 for 3 hours) that's 1.1TB a month.

I'd definitely put it in the low terabytes range.
I use a lot of internet devices and normally do around 1TB per month, mostly streaming services and/or game updates.

No, quite a few games I own are around 80GB fully updated. Between 3 PCs plus browsing, TV, Music. About 3 years ago my router was reporting this in its monthly report. I guess if you're file-sharing it would bump it up a lot as well.
Use around 10TB month, gaming/downloading
