Written by Arvig in Home Technology for Your Home
Let’s talk about the weather. Sound boring? Ok, new topic—the internet. Exciting, right? Now let’s make a comparison. If you think about it, the internet is kind of like the weather. It would be fair to say conditions have gone from a drizzle to a downpour. And the forecast? Well, things aren’t going to be drying up anytime soon.
Before you dive in to our infographic, ask yourself this: How do you use your home connection?
Do you stream video in HD? Video chat with friends on Skype? Play video games online or regularly download large files?
How many connected devices are in your home? It can add up quickly when you think beyond the laptop and start counting smartphones, your TV, your e-reader and maybe even that new Amazon Echo.
As you might know, the internet landscape has changed a lot in just a few years. Everything revolves around data, and there are a growing number of services and devices that need connectivity to operate. As households with multiple devices become the norm, competition for bandwidth has increased.
What speed package do you have? Is it enough to meet your needs?
If you want the best online experience, (videos without buffering, movies without queuing, gaming without lag and video calls free of freezing or motion blur) you need a connection with the bandwidth to support your devices.
A fast broadband connection could be the difference between sinking and swimming.
