Gigabit Users More Network Savvy

According to a new study, adopters of gigabit fiber optic services are online for three times the daily average while using more complex home networks that support five or more devices. The report, “Residential Gigabit Subscribers: Services, Applications and Attitudes,” was provided by Telecom Thinktank and RVA LLC and offers a glimpse into the growing community of gigabit Internet users worldwide. Gigabit fiber optic services are a relatively new feature, having debuted in Hong Kong in 2010, but are spreading rapidly through smaller operators in densely populated areas. The survey was initiated to determine the motivation and use scenarios of consumers who employ ultra-high speed broadband access.
