Internet Service FAQ

Due to the technical limitations at the time we established services at your building, some of our higher speeds may not yet be available. That said, we are working to upgrade as many of our service locations to our top rates as is economically viable, both to increase our offerings, as well as reliability gained by new technologies.

We urge you to contact us with your interest, as this helps us to decipher with locations would make a viable candidate for our next upgrade.

What is Bandwidth?

Generally speaking, bandwidth is the maximum rate at which you can download data from the internet to your computer.

Think about bandwidth like a hose.  Imagine you need to fill a 100-gallon tank. If your hose can only give out only 5 gallons per minute, you’ll be waiting 20 minutes to fill the tank, while a hose that gives a gallon of water every second will fill the tank in less than 2 minutes.

Similarly, the larger the bandwidth, the more data you can pull down in a given time.

Bandwidth is measured in bits per second. Note that bits are different than bytes, which are the common measure of file size. One byte equals 8 bits, so 1 megabyte (MB) equals 8 megabits.

If you have a 1 megabit-per-second connection, a 1MB file will take eight seconds to download.

On a 1 Mbps connection, an MP3 file, which might measure about 6MB, will take about 48 seconds to download. A 5 gigabyte, or 5,000MB, movie will take about 11 hours.

What internet speed (how much bandwidth) do I need?

Bandwidth needs are dependent on the number of users and devices simultaneously accessing the internet. That being the case, a person living alone, with a limited amount of devices will obviously be less dependent on high bandwidth than a home with multiple users and devices.

The following is an idea of basic bandwidth needs for different applications.

If you want … You’ll need about…
General web surfing, email, social media 1 Mbps
Online gaming* 1-3 Mbps
Video conferencing** 1-4 Mbps
Standard-definition video streaming 3-4 Mbps
High-definition video streaming 5-8 Mbps
Frequent large file downloading 50 Mbps and up
*A connection with low latency, the time it takes your computer to talk to the game server, is more important than bandwidth for gaming.
**You’ll want at least a 1 Mbps upload speed for quality video conferencing.
