Power Usage by Broadband Subscribers Set to Hit Milestone

Median monthly usage by broadband subscribers in 2020 is on a trajectory to surpass 250 GB for the first time, according to the Q4 2019 OVBI (OpenVault Broadband Industry) report, which notes that a 24.4% increase in average provisioned speed, from 103.1 Mbps to 128.3 Mbps, in 2019 was slightly outpaced by a 27.3% increase in average consumption, from 270.2 GB to 344 GB. OpenVault projects that by the end of 2020 “power usage” of more than 1 TB per month will account for at least 12% of all subscribers, a 60% increase from EOY 2019, and that “extreme power usage” of more than 2TB will reach 1.4% of subscribers, an 80% increase from EOY 2019. “These trends are critically important planning metrics for operators to consider,” especially those using slower DSL, early generation DOCSIS, or wireless-based platforms, the report says. “As these operators upgrade their networks, they can use predictive modeling to better plan for the impact on their network.”
