Understanding Internet Speed
Broadband internet speed is a complex topic and it’s easy to get lost in the weeds when you’re trying to understand how much speed you have vs. how much speed you need.
Many people today use the words bandwidth and speed interchangeably. While they are related, understanding the difference can help you understand a lot about how your home network works.
Bandwidth determines how much data can be downloaded or uploaded. For example, if you choose a plan with 1000Mbps (that’s a Gig!), it means you can move 1000 megabits of data per second. The higher the Mbps the more data you can move per second.
Speed determines how fast the data moves. For example, if you choose a plan with 1000Mbps, it means you can move 1000 megabits of data per second. Again, the higher the Mbps the more data you can move per second.
Not confusing at all, right?
