what are the facts behind Internet Speed?
Internet providers are trying to gets to pay higher prices for faster internet, as a result
It may not be a good idea to pay for higher speeds, for instance there are times
when you can sign up for faster internet speeds in an area where the infrastructure to deliver those speeds has
not even been installed.
Connection Speed Levels:
The basic speed of internet delivery available through most carriers in North America
is 25 Mbps (Megabits per second) which will support light usage by one or two users.
But most households would need a higher level, which is classed as Average.
Average Connection speed delivers 100 Mbps, and will support normal usage by about 2 users.
Fast internet gives you 200 Mbps and will support normal usage by up to 5 users, or some time less people for
example heavy usage by 2 users.
Very Fast connection speeds deliver 500 Mbps and would work well for an office setting, or like gamers.
It supports up to five heavy users.
This level of connection speed allows for faster reaction times and high-speed responses for a good number of users.
Ultra-High Speed Internet delivers 1000 Mbps, but is not available in many areas.
Things That Affect Internet Speed:
The speed of your internet access can be affected by several things, for instance
The one thing that has the most effect is the number of computers currently using the same data stream.
If there are 5 people in your home using your 200 Mbps internet at the same time, the speed will be affected for all 5 of them.
There will be a noticeable decrease in speed for all 5 devices, which can be very frustrating for the people involved.
You may need to subscribe to a higher speed to solve this problem.
Do your research and find a plan that works better for you.
