Oftentimes, it can be hard to comprehend what an Internet service provider means when they discuss the megabits per second when they speak about Internet speeds. The best way to understand what this means is to break down the acronyms. Internet speeds are outlined in terms of upload speeds and download speeds. Both of these are typically listed in Megabits per second or Gigabits per second. These are not the same as Megabytes per second or Gigabytes per second. Megabits or Gigabits per second are in reference to your Internet connection’s ability to transfer files, data, and more to your family. The more you use your Internet for downloading movies, playing games, or interactive online activities, the more Megabits or Gigabits you’ll want to keep your Du Page home connected.
Do you have a lot of avid readers in your Du Page family? If you are consistently finding that your Internet speeds are slowing, it may be because the readers in your family are using all of your download speed. Download speed is measured in megabits per second (Mbps) which is not to be confused with Megabytes per second (MBps). Megabytes per second is the measurement of a file size while megabits per second is the measurement of the time it would take for your Internet to download or upload a file. When downloading an E-book, plans with 25 Mbps or more will typically perform this action in less than a second. However, plans with less than 25 Mbps will take longer and can be what’s causing slow-downs at your Du Page home. Make sure you have enough Internet download speed for your family’s needs.
Did you know that every instance a device connects to WiFi, it can slow down your wireless Internet connection? What is uncommonly known is that a device does not have to be actively connecting to the Internet in order to affect your wireless signal. This means that a home with 12 devices connected to the wireless router are simultaneously pulling on that Internet connection simultaneously, even if all of them are not in use at the same time. To protect your Du Page home from slowing connections, you need to control how many devices are connected to your wireless router at a time. This may mean shutting down certain connections at certain times of the day or night.
