So without further ado, allow us to give you the skinny on internet speeds:

Understanding Internet Speed

Alright, let's work from the ground up here.

Internet speed is measured in Megabits per second, or Mbps. This is the basic measurement, courtesy of Physics, of digital information that can be downloaded in one second. Mbs and download speeds have a directly correlational relationship. Meaning if one goes up, the other goes up alongside it. And vice versa.

In that regard, if you have 25 Mbps internet, your download speeds will go up as much as 25 Megabits per second will allow. Now, if you have 60 Mbps internet, download speeds will be much faster in comparison, and download the same content in a better, quicker time.

Different internet plans offer different internet speeds. Typically, the larger the value of the Mbps offered, the bigger the cost for the plan is.

Generally, 25 Mbps internet is sufficient enough to deal with your online workings.

But if you have absolutely no idea what plan to part with, an ISP like Spectrum has a handy dandy customer support department ready to guide you in the best possible way. Contact its Customer Support and skip the manual configuration part.

Deducing What Speed You Need

For the most part, the Internet is used in three distinct formats: entertainment, gaming, and social media. These three horsemen of the digital world ensure that we go about our daily lives comfortably without feeling too left out.

· Movies/Shows

The speed you would require to get your regular dose of entertainment depends on the format you’d like to experience it in. Standard Definition or SD is the first base for streaming sites such as Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube for watching content.

The resolution won’t be anything to ogle over but it will definitely get the job done. All while keeping the required range from 3-5 Mbps. Economical and simple.

· Online Gaming

Playing games is a therapeutic, fun, and relaxing experience. We’re talking about the offline, usually single-player ones. Once you switch gears and hop to the online multiplayer side, all hell breaks loose. For the most part, online games are competitive.

Those who perform the best, take the fattest slice of the cake. And that’s what invokes sweaty gaming! Online gaming demands low latency, and fast speeds to keep the ping at an all-time low and let you do your thing as you chase the top spot. The best speeds that allow this range from 50-60 Mbps.

· Social Media

Apps that pump internet juice and keep you connected with your loved ones aren’t too heavy on your data usage. If you’re someone who has Facebook, X (formerly Twitter), Instagram and maybe even LinkedIn set as your daily feeds, chances are you’re going to be okay with speeds that average around 10 Mbps.

Spectrum Internet Plans

Now that we’ve helped jog up your memory on the nitty-gritty of online connectivity, let’s go ahead and form a connection with how Spectrum slides into the mix.
