Your internet speed controls who quickly you can upload or download data. If you use a variety of internet-connected devices, having a slow internet connection can impact the usability and enjoyment of your internet. Getting a plan with insufficient speed for watching videos, uploading files, or playing video games can lead to frustration when your show, game, or video chat cuts out. On the other hand, choosing one with much more speed than your household needs can waste money. Our knowledgeable team can help you if you aren’t sure of the right speed for you.
Occasionally, your internet speed will fluctuate. There are several reasons, including:
Throttling due to data limits
Type of connection, such as cable vs. fiber
With our fiber internet, you should experience speeds as expected with your plan. However, there are some things you can do if you have checked for and eliminated the most obvious problems. Try some of these troubleshooting steps to boost your speed:
Restart your router to clear stored data and refresh your connection.
Check to make sure you have the latest router able to handle your internet speed, and upgrade to a high-quality, long-range model if you don’t.
Make security a priority with WPA2 security and secure passwords. Lax security could lead to others pirating your connection, limiting your speed, and putting your data at risk.
Embrace 5G to reap the best speed for your connection by switching your router from the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi channel to the 5 GHz one.
Reposition your WiFi antenna. By pointing one straight up and one to the side, you’ll have better coverage throughout the house.
Internet service plans are typically defined by bandwidth. Your internet bandwidth controls the amount of data that you can upload or download. According to the FCC, high-speed broadband is defined as download speeds of up to 25 megabits per second and upload speeds of up to 3 megabits per second (25/3 Mbps). Strangely, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines it as just 10/1 Mbps. Now some senators are trying to get the government to update those definitions.
To show how outdated that is, it doesn’t even meet the minimum requirements for Zoom. This widely used platform recommends 3.8Mbps upload speeds for just one 1080p video. Homes now have to accommodate multiple simultaneous streams for leisure activities, homeschooling, and working from home. The best way to determine what bandwidth you need, divide any plan by the number of devices in your home and, if the result is 25-40 Mbps, that should be adequate for your needs.
It can seem overwhelming to know which choice is right for you when choosing a home internet package. However, when you choose Burlington Telecom, you aren’t on your own.
