North American homes use an average of seven active connected devices, but laptops and PCs now account for less than 25% of traffic, according to new research by Sandvine.
The broadband network solutions firm’s latest Global Internet Phenomena report claims that the average household uses over seven active devices each day, but 6% of households had more than 15 active devices.
The ‘Inside the Connected Home’ research also said tablets and smartphones used on fixed WiFi networks now account for 30% of North American fixed access traffic – more than laptops.
Meanwhile, on PlayStation 4 consoles, game play was only responsible for 2.5% of this device’s total traffic, with video streaming accounting for 65%.
“The ability to understand what is happening within the connected home is valuable data that communications service providers can use to ensure they are providing their subscribers with the best possible experience,” said Sandvine CTO, Don Bowman.
