Internet usage at homes on broadband connections is increasing due to this current pandemic situation created by Covid-19. People are stuck at home and are accessing more entertainment sources such as video streaming as shown in the infographic video. Streaming traffic has increased more compared to the last year and this trend looks to continue further. Connected devices in homes are also increasing as more and more devices become Internet enabled today.

Data usage for 4K streaming consumes data at about 12 Mbps on YouTube. HD movies on Netflix consume about 3GB per hour. More people are streaming on large screens with smart TVs and other Smart dongles such as Fire Stick, Chromecast and OTT boxes.
