How much Internet speed do you need? This is a question you may find yourself asking every time you need to renew your Internet service plan or pay your bill. Knowing which broadband service plan is right for you and your household isn’t always the simplest question to answer. Consider these questions to help determine if the answer:
IN YOUR HOME, HOW MANY DEVICES ARE USING THE INTERNET AT ANY GIVEN TIME?
HOW OFTEN DO YOU VIDEO CONFERENCE?
HOW OFTEN DOES YOUR HOUSEHOLD ENGAGE IN ONLINE VIDEO GAMING?
The number of devices, or the volume of information transmitted over an internet connection in a specific amount of time, is called the bandwidth. The higher a household’s bandwidth, the higher its download and upload internet speed needs to be in order to avoid a frustrating online experience. Applications such as video conferencing and video gaming for example, require higher speeds than simply just surfing the web. But should higher speeds mean excessively higher costs? Take these next two factors for example.
