Broadband Industry Report

In 3Q19, the overall US weighted average broadband usage (combining customers on FRB and UBB billing) was 275 gigabytes, up 21% from 3Q18’s weighted average of 228 GB. During the same period, the median monthly weighted average usage increased nearly 25% from 118.2 GB to 147.4 GB. Cord cutting continues to have a profound impact on the broadband business, both operationally and financially. Cord cutting shows no signs of slowing down, especially with a number of new high- profile streaming services from the likes of Disney and Apple about to launch.
