Business internet

Your internet connection is one of the most important services you buy for your home or business. We live in a connected world that values fast download and upload speeds, a free Wi-Fi connection in coffee shops and lobbies, and faster speeds in general.

First, decide whether residential or business internet is best for your needs. Choosing one over the other can help you with other decisions—like narrowing your list of internet service providers.

Choose a business internet service if you need a connection to make money, host your own server, or rely on top-notch customer service. On the other hand, a residential broadband connection works great for activities like streaming, checking email, or online gaming.

Compare 20 Mbps to Other Speeds

Choose the “Goldilocks” of internet speeds—not too fast or too slow. You won’t be frustrated with lags or waste money on bandwidth you don’t need.

A 20 Mbps broadband internet connection is a great option for homes or businesses that frequently use their service for a variety of activities.

Consider 20 Mbps if you answer yes to one or more of these questions:

  • Do you upload or download large data files frequently?
  • Do you often get frustrated with average internet speeds?
  • Do you download or stream high-definition video?
  • Do you or anyone in your home participate in online gaming?
  • Do you use VoIP, Skype, or other digital phone services?

Answering no to most or all of these questions indicates you don’t need speeds as fast as 20 Mbps. Let’s take a look at another popular internet speed, 15 Mbps. This high-speed internet connection is great if you don’t transfer data often, watch SD instead of HD video, or have just a handful of connected devices.

If you’re still unsure which speeds are ideal for your situation, run a speed test. You can then decide if you want faster speeds or if you’re satisfied with your current bandwidth.
