Is Your Internet Fast Enough for Streaming?
Until recently one could argue that gigabit was overkill. But today, that kind of speed is needed. Especially when you take into account, multiple users in the household that are either streaming music, streaming movies, or playing games simultaneously. And, add to that the applications and devices we use today which are overwhelming audio and video centric. Things like Smart TVs, video doorbells, smart locks, surveillance cameras, Amazon Echo, all need bandwidth to work. That means homes with multiple users will need internet service that can provide at least 90 Mbps speed. Keep in mind, this is an assessment is based on 4 active users in a home, it does not take into account the size of the home, building materials used to build the home (or other interference caused by everyday items), or any of the equipment being used to maximize the speed you are paying for. Check how much internet speed you need by using BroadbadNow’s speed calculator.
Internet providers frequently use the terms “bandwidth” and “speed” interchangeably. But, there is a subtle difference between them.
- Bandwidth: the maximum amount of data that can be transmitted over an Internet connection (Mbps)
- Speed: the rate at which data can be downloaded (or uploaded) to a given device using that Internet connection (Mbps)
