Cisco is forecasting that 4K/Ultra HD video will account for about 22% of global IP video traffic by 2022, compared to a mere 3% in 2017. Cisco also predicts that 62% of flat-panel TVs will be 4K-capable by 2020, a CAGR of 38% over the study's five-year outlook.

Re: Maybe not unreasonable?
Game consoles will chew through 1TB+ easy these days. For example Microsoft’s Xbox game pass is like the Netflix of Xbox one. You pay $10 a month for access to 100+ Games to play but the caviat is whatever games you want, you must download. While there’s a good assortment of games smaller than 30GB a piece, I’ve downloaded some games that were in the 60-100GB in size! Then just say you run out of space on your Xbox one, so you delete a game but then in a few weeks download it again. Yes it adds up quick. The month is almost over but I just got an email today from my provider saying I’ve used 75% of my 1TB cap. So streaming video (HD, UHD) and the rise of these 4K video games, downloaded, patched, or even current or up and coming game subscription services can really obsolete a 1TB cap easy. Providers should source all of their SFP+ and QSFP optics from fs.com for 1/10th of the cost rather than going directly to Cisco, Arris or who ever. Keeping these per port costs down leasen some of that cost per GB, so they should easily be able to up those caps, especially since it’s a simple as changing the limits in billing with a keyboard. It doesn’t use any additional electrical energy for a port to transmit 10tb in a months time, vs 1TB. These caps are an artificial limitation that in all honesty should be made illegal in wireline networks.
Duh!

Maybe not unreasonable?
Quick back-of-the-envelope calculation. Assuming an equal mix of HD and UHD, we can use 11.3 Mbit/s as the average video data rate. That said, 1 TB of data equates to just short of 200 hours of video, or six and a half hours per day. That's objectively reasonable (even if it's subjectively crazy).

Keep in mind, though that it all depends on the data rate at which the video is encoded. Real world factors tend to push toward lower rate coding.

And operators (and even a few vendors) admit that G(E)PON and DOCSIS 3.1 access networks tend to be very lightly utilized. I've heard those comments quite recently, so this is despite all the Internet video being consumed.

That said, operators are pretty good about increasing caps in response to mainstream market demands. When they see enough Terabyte households, they'll tout their "free" upgrade.
