It is always nice to know how much internet speed your household needs for daily tasks and entertainment. Do you primarily use the internet to send emails and surf the web? Have family members that do online gaming or watch Netflix? How many people and devices are connected at one time? Remember to add up all of the activities that are happening at the same time to get the final results that your household requires.
- 2.5 Mbps or less: Basic web surfing and email
- 5 Mbps: Web surfing, email, occasional streaming and online gaming with few connected devices
- 10 Mbps: Moderate streaming, online gaming and downloading with a moderate number of connected devices
- 25 Mbps: Heavy streaming, online gaming and downloading with a lot of connected devices
You can compare typical online activities with the minimum Mbps needed for adequate performance for each application by using the following broadband speed chart. The chart is based on running one activity/ device at a time.
