How fast is your internet speed? Getting the fastest internet is usually everyone’s top priority when choosing an internet provider and shopping around for the best deals. But what do the numbers really mean? Let’s learn about the 123’s and ABC’s of your internet speed, and find the perfect number for your needs and budget.
Simply, your internet speed indicates how much data can be transferred online on an internet connection. The numbers don’t lie—the higher your internet speed, the faster you can complete tasks online, like watching videos, streaming music, sending emails, joining video calls, and playing games.
There’s more to internet speed than your browsing and streaming habits. The fastest speeds aren’t just about lightning-fast loading times. While you may do some of these tasks at the minimum speed, the fastest internet speeds allow for a more stable connection that can support multiple devices and users.
This is why when choosing an internet plan, you need to consider not just your everyday habits but also the number of devices and users sharing the connection. Do you live alone or with family, each connected to the same Wi-Fi network? How fast is fast enough for everyone’s needs, from work to play?
Understanding the different internet speeds and internet terms that your provider uses is the first step to getting the best home internet plan for all your needs.
Internet speeds that are too slow can be frustrating for the entire family—there won’t be enough bandwidth for everyone to stream, play, work, and study all at once using the same internet connection. But when it’s too fast and more than enough for your everyday needs, you might end up overpaying for internet services. Keep in mind that the best internet plan is a balance of the fastest internet speeds for your everyday needs, at the best value for your budget.
Choosing your internet speed? Start by knowing your internet terms—the ABC’s of internet speed, how it works, and how fast is fast enough for your everyday needs:

You need the fastest internet to work, learn, and stay connected at home.
