Can I exceed my internet speed?
Yes, you can exceed internet speed. The easiest way to understand speed is by thinking of your home internet connection as a highway. The highway extends from our central office to your home. The cars on the highway are data—everything you do online, like streaming videos or social media browsing. The speed that the cars (data) are able to travel are dependent on how many lanes of traffic there are. More lanes equate to faster travel i.e. more speed equates to quicker download times on Netflix. If a 25 Mbps plan seems slow, consider upgrading to a 75 Mbps plan to expand your ‘highway’. Signs of exceeding your speed limit include lengthy download and upload times, constant buffering, and unstable WiFi connections.
