This thread is born out of some curiosity. I noted a 4k stream buffering quite badly a couple of days back. A check on my 62-ish megabit connection showed it was saturated. It remained saturated until I stopped streaming.
I have a router that produces various statistics and confirmed what was going on. There were 3 devices streaming, 1 browsing and an XBoxOne downloading. There were 4 active users. The XBOne is the heaviest device for usage, its owner streams and downloads demos and games a fair bit.
Usage is heavily skewed towards peak period. The connection is consuming around 750GB downstream a month, up from less than 500 last year, so the CAGR on my connection isn't exceptional and it will probably be over the 1TB a month mark next year.
Is it just me that is finding my above-average FTTC insufficient at times?
