Oftentimes, it can be confusing what an Internet service provider means when they discuss the megabits per second when they refer to 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 separate from 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 apartment. The more you use your Internet for downloading movies, playing games, or interactive online activities, the more Megabits or Gigabits you’ll need to keep your Hammond home connected.
When you’re ready to change Internet service providers or simply upgrade your plan, it’s best to audit the way you and your Hammond family use the Internet. If you are typically just surfing the Internet and checking emails, you will be fine with 10 Mbps of download speed. But, if you typically stream video and play online games, you should choose to get more. Don’t get confused about the difference between megabits per second and megabytes per second, either. Megabytes per second (MBps) refers to the size of a file being uploaded or downloaded while megabits per second (Mbps) is the speed at which your Internet connection will upload or download information.
Did you know that every time 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 presently 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 concurrently, even if all of them are not in use at the same time. To protect your Hammond 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.
