The Right Speed Can Take You Anywhere
Broadband just keeps getting bigger.
The average internet connection in the U.S. reached 18.75 Mbps in 2017, up 22 percent from 2016. That’s enough to download an HD movie in about 30 minutes.
The internet experience isn’t what it used to be 15, 10 or even five years ago. In the early years of the internet age, homes had a single home computer, and getting online meant tying up the phone line.
Today, we have broad home networks with multiple devices connected via wires or wirelessly. We stream movies and TV in HD, game online in 4K, keep up with social media on our smartphones and shop online from our tablets. It’s not unusual for a family to have six or more connected devices. The rise of bandwidth-intensive applications is driving the need for faster speeds.
