Lightning Fast Internet Speeds
Fast. Faster. Fastest. Find the Internet that’s just your speed
No two people use the internet in exactly the same way. Some use it for email and social media while others prefer to shop. Some need a fast speed internet for downloading photos and music. Others watch streaming videos and movies on demand, or need the highest possible speeds to maximize their gaming experience.
So, there’s no “one size fits all” when it comes to internet speeds, it all depends on your personal needs. No matter what you do online, MetroCast offers a range of internet options that suit your needs and your budget.
Internet Speeds and Usage
How much speed you need depends on what you do online. Here are some common examples of online activities and the minimum download speeds needed for each activity (if more than one activity is occurring concurrently, you’ll need to add bandwidth):
- Web Browsing: 0.5—1.5 Mbps
- Shopping: 0.5—1.5 Mbps
- Streaming music: 0.5—2.0 Mbps
- Streaming videos: 5 Mbps and up
- Gaming: 20 Mbps and up
- Streaming Super HD or 4K Video: 35 Mbps and up
- Virtual Reality Game (in 720 p): 50 Mbps and up
The speed you need may change over time, so choosing internet speeds slightly higher than your normal needs is recommended. Remember as well, if your household has multiple devices connected to your system, you’ll need fast speed internet to handle each device’s demand on your bandwidth.
