A new survey has found that almost a third of UK broadband customers download more than 40 GB of data per month.

The results come at the end of ISPReview's monthly user poll, which asked a total of 1,485 people to estimate the average amount of data consumed on a monthly basis.

Almost 33 per cent of respondents estimated that they used more than 40 GB, with the remaining 70 per cent of results spread among lower usage ranges.

At the bottom end of the scale, only 2.9 per cent of those surveyed estimated that they used less than 1 GB - highlighting the high-bandwidth habits of UK consumers.

Nearly 20 per cent of people said that they used between 1 and 5 GB, with almost 12 per cent stating that they used between 5 and 10 GB.

The independent broadband review site has now uploaded its April survey, which asks users two questions: Firstly whether they believe there is sufficient demand for 20Mbps broadband services and secondly, whether they will upgrade to such packages when they are available.

Such high-speed services have recently been announced by Virgin Media and BT, while elsewhere a scheme to deliver ultra-fast broadband services through the sewer networks is also being trialled.
