New Zealand breaks internet data records

New Zealand households have set a new internet consumption record in April.

The latest data shows that each house, on average, used almost 500 gigabytes of data.

To give you an idea that is around 12 hours of online video calls per day per house.

The 700,000 fibre-connected households used an average of 495GB, while copper-connected houses used 406GB.

Traffic for both was up around 30 percent compared to February’s use.

The average speed also increased to more than 150 Mbps as more people connected to high-speed fibre plans.
