According to data from the NCTA's COVID-19 Internet Dashboard, peak broadband traffic continues to remain steady, tending to confirm data from last week that suggested demand growth was leveling off. The dashboard includes aggregated data from cable Internet service providers that deliver broadband to tens of millions of homes and businesses throughout America.

This week's data continues last week's trend: that the growth in peak traffic nationally (both downstream and upstream) is showing signs of levelling off. The NCTA expects some variation among individual states or regions, but nationally, two weeks of consistent data indicate that growth is slowing and, in some places, even plateauing.

Specifically:

  • National downstream peak growth remained flat for the second consecutive week, up 0.65% for the week of April 4-11.
  • National upstream peak growth continued to decelerate for the second consecutive week, up 0.71% for the week of April 4-11 compared to increases of 4% and 7% the previous two weeks.
