    1. The connections aren’t necessarily equal to the number of people. A household with one connection can have four or six people sharing the same connection. There are about 116 million households in the US according to the census data.

      From that perspective, we have over 72 percent of the total market penetration, perhaps even a little more. It is not quite the highest — many other nations such as South Korea have higher overall penetration but many are denser and smaller, both in geographical size and population.

      Maybe that will help put context to the numbers.
