Choosing the Right Service for you

slide 2:

After familiarizing yourself with the different types of service that ISPs offer and provide you need to make a choice based on which of these suits you. Two main factors should drive you decision: what speeds you require and whether you can find internet service providers giving out that specific type of service in your area. The latter can weed out a lot of options if you live in a remote or rural area leaving you with just a few companies to choose from. After that you will probably get to choose among different speed tiers because most services have more than one. Choose the right service

slide 3:

Advanced users and those with several devices to connect would do well to sign up for a higher-tiered plan. Most others can get what they want from a cheaper plan besides buying more speed than you need is a waste of money. Choose the right service

slide 4:

Bandwidth is best defined as the upper limit to your download speeds. It is analogous to the size of a water hose. A 100-gallon tank can be filled up in 20 minutes with a hose that can carry 5 gallons per minute and much faster by a fire hose which can obviously transfer a lot more water in the same time. Similarly the more bandwidth you can access the less time it will take to download or upload data. Bandwidth

slide 5:

The most commonly used unit of bandwidth is bits per second bps. This is not the same as bytes per second Bps. A byte of data is made up of 8 bits making 1 megabyte MB equal to 8 megabits. A 1 Mbps connection theoretically allows you to download an MB of data in eight seconds. That means the average MP3 file of 6 MB size would get downloaded in 48 seconds while a 5000 MB movie would take around 11 hours. Bandwidth

slide 6:

The Bandwidth you Need Your connection would have a bandwidth which gets shared among all the devices connected on it. Your usage determines how much bandwidth you are going to need generally. If a person in the house is downloading a game while another is streaming a movie and yet another is posting HQ pictures on Instagram a lot of bandwidth is needed to ensure everyone is kept happy.

slide 7:

The Bandwidth you Need Video streaming usually takes up the maximum amount of bandwidth for which reason a household running simultaneous streams would require continuous access to higher speeds. A single standard-quality stream can be accommodated by a 3 Mbps connection while a high-definition stream would entail 5 Mbps or higher. For two simultaneous HD streams you would need access to around 10 Mbps bandwidth.

slide 8:

The Bandwidth you Need Online games take up less data and hence require lower bandwidth. What a good gaming experience does require is low latency. Downloading a game is a different thing though. The installer is usually a huge file that would take a lot of bandwidth to download in a short time. People who limit their use to general web surfing social media and emailing would not require speeds over 1 Mbps.

slide 9:

The Bandwidth you Need One thing to remember is that while you find internet service providers touting really high speeds there is no guarantee that you will get to access them after signing up. What you do get is the listed speed the bandwidth you get to enjoy is affected by many factors including the number of devices online at the time your hardware the ISP’s infrastructure quality etc. On the plus side subscribers may sometimes get faster speeds than they signed up for such as when the overall network demand drops.
