Looking at internet service provider data generated by OpenVault in the United States and Western Europe, about 1.85 percent of subscribers tracked by OpenVault buy gigabit-speed service.
Some 3.5 percent buy services running between 300 Mbps and 500 Mbps, while seven percent buy service at speeds between 200 Mbps to 300 Mbps.
About 65 percent buy services running between 50 Mbps and 150 Mbps.
A reasonable person might guess that the percentage of customers buying speeds of at least 200 Mbps, up to 1 Gbps, is higher in the United States than Western Europe, largely because cable TV operators, which sell the highest speeds, dominate the U.S. market.
The mid-range Comcast Xfinity services, for example, seem to run at speeds up to 200 Mbps or 250 Mbps across most of its markets.
