You may think your Internet speed has been working fine for your household so why mess with a good thing, right? Here are five reasons your Internet speed may not be supporting your household as well as you thought.
1. Multiple Users
How many people are on the Internet at one time in your household? How many devices do each one of those people use at one time? Think about it: you may be streaming a TV show on your laptop while scrolling on your phone. Down the hall, your son or daughter is doing homework on their laptop, while checking their Snapchat. In the kitchen, your spouse is ordering groceries online. You may need more speed than you think.
Increasing bandwidth allows for a better experience.
2. Go to Your Happy Place
We’ve all been there: the cool video on Facebook or the video we are required to watch for school or work is buffering, buffering, buffering. Faster Internet equals less buffering, equals everyone in the household in their happy place.
3. Online School and Work
Since the COVID-19 pandemic struck, many more students are engaged in distance learning. Many parents are working from home. Are you trying to do all that extra online work with the same speeds you had a year ago? It might be time for an upgrade.
4. To the Cloud in No Time
More and more things are being stored in “the cloud,” such as photos, documents, and communications. When you have to retrieve important documents from cloud storage, or external servers, you want just as smooth access to them as if they were on your desktop. Faster Internet can make the path to the cloud much more efficient.
5. Keep Your Focus
Whether it’s distance learning or working from home or just trying to order groceries online, it’s easy to lose your focus when you have to wait for a slow Internet connection. Don’t lose your concentration when it comes to a particular project or objective by having to wait on your Internet speeds.
