Driven by faster speeds, the median monthly usage by broadband customers in 2020 is on pace to surpass 250 gigabytes (GB) for the first time.

According to the fourth quarter 2019 OpenVault Broadband Industry (OVBI) report, which was issued on Tuesday, the median usage of 250 GB would mark a 25% increase over 2019’s median usage of 190.7 GB.

The increased broadband consumption has a direct correlation with faster speeds, according to OpenVault’s 10 years of analysis. The report said 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.
