Knowing What Speed You Need Is Important
There are many factors that go into choosing the best internet speed for your home’s unique needs and budget. Choose a speed high enough to ensure multiple people can be streaming, gaming, scrolling and working with less lag time and/or buffering.
Consider the following questions to find the right speed for your household:
How many people will be connecting to the internet?
How many wireless and wired devices does your household have?
Do you utilize online education or work from home?
How many videos do you stream at one time?
Does anyone in your home do online gaming?
Your answers to these questions can affect your online experience. If you choose a speed that is too slow and have multiple people streaming videos or gaming, you may experience lag time and/or buffering.
