Average home network speeds powering ahead – more than doubling in past 4 years
A recently released study has outlined a massive growth in home network performance levels over the past four years.
Plume IQ released the report in February 2022, offering key insights into the world of home broadband.
Plume has been described as a Wi-Fi NOW Partner and home broadband services platform provider. The company claims to have 35 million home broadband locations, connecting more than 1.3 billion Wi-FI-enabled devices. Each month, the company offers new insights into the home network industry, with figures anonymously extracted from Plume’s home broadband locations.
A key takeaway from the report is that home network speeds have more than doubled in the space of four years. The end of 2018 saw average speeds of 152 Mbps, while the end of 2021 registered an average of 317 Mbps – an increase of around 108%.
It was also revealed that from 2015 to 2021, the amount of connected devices has more than doubled too, with an increase of 137%. Meanwhile, the amount of IoT (internet of things) devices has more than tripled between December 2015 and December 2021, at around 197%.
In a public statement, Plume CTO Bill McFarland said “This data serves as proof that building an adaptive home network with advanced analytics allows you to effortlessly enjoy the growing roster of connected devices in your home”.
