High-Speed Internet

Looking for a fast, reliable Internet connection? Great Plains Communications can help! With high-speed Internet options with download speeds ranging from 15 Mbps all the way up to 1 Gig, getting the speed you need has never been easier.

Knowing What Speed You Need Is Important

There are a number of factors that go into choosing the best Internet speed for your home. Consider the following questions to ensure you have the right Internet speed to meet the needs of your household.

How many people will be connecting to the Internet?

How many wireless and wired devices does your family 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.


Choosing the Right Internet Speed

Your Internet connection is like a highway: the more traffic that is on the road, the more congested and slow the experience becomes. When multiple devices are running simultaneously, bandwidth is used up quickly and a traffic jam can occur, resulting in buffering and lag. The more devices you are running, the more speed you will need.
