STATFlash: Bandwidth for U.S. Ethernet Services Rises 35% in 2022

Customer demand for Gigabit speed connectivity continues to drive bandwidth growth.

BOSTON, MA, December 14, 2022 РTotal bandwidth installed for U.S. retail Ethernet services is up 35% in 2022, according to ENS Ethernet research from Vertical Systems Group. Bandwidth calculations utilize 2022 weighting factors for customer-subscribed port rates across six Ethernet service segments for six speed segments as follows: 100+ Gbps, 10 Gbps, 1 Gbps, 100 Mbps, 10 Mbps, and Sub-10 Mbps.

‚ÄúSolid demand for higher speed, lower cost per bit Gigabit Ethernet services is clearly driving the rise in bandwidth, while sustaining market growth as well. Despite price compression across all Ethernet services, revenue in 2022 increased for customer installations with Gigabit connectivity, while revenue eroded for lower speed services,‚ÄĚ said Rosemary Cochran, Principal & Co-Founder, Vertical Systems Group. ‚ÄúEnterprises are upgrading to higher bandwidth services to support business-critical applications such as connectivity to data centers and cloud services, Internet access, brokerage trading, multimedia, video, and high-performance computing.‚ÄĚ
