The Ever Growing Need For Speed
Whether you are video chatting, uploading family videos, or playing your favorite online games—you may be using more broadband than you think. We are providing future-proof fiber-optic technology to deliver the speed and reliability you need to stay connected and enjoy all of your favorite devices.
The Difference Gigabit Speed Makes
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) defines broadband or high-speed internet as 25 Mbps for download and 3 Mbps for upload speed. This is the average speed for most households in the US. While it’s a good speed for most people, we wouldn’t necessarily call it fast by today’s standards. A good internet speed is defined by however many Mbps you need to stay online without limitations like network stuttering, buffering, or long wait times for downloads. On the high end, residential internet speeds can reach up to a gigabit per second (Gbps) of download speed, or 1,000 Mbps. That kind of bandwidth is good for large families, multifamily homes, and businesses. That said, the extra speed (and cost) might be overkill for most people. But you can’t deny that it’s fast.
More Devices, Need More
More Users Need More Speed
90% of U.S. households have three or more Internet connected devices, while just under half of households have five or more devices and nearly a quarter use seven or more devices.
