What is a good internet speed?

A good internet speed depends on your personal use. These days Internet speed is usually represented in Mbps (Mega Bits per Second).

Internet service providers define internet speed as Upload Speed and Download Speed. If your internet usage is limited to checking emails, browsing websites and occasional YouTube/video streaming then 3Mbps Download, 1Mbps Upload bandwidth would be enough.

On the other hands if you are into HD video streaming and online gaming and/or have multiple users using the internet, better to have minimum 10Mbps/1Mbps bandwidth.

  • Close all unnecessary Apps.
  • Turn Off WiFi on devices which are not being used specially on a shared network.
  • Away from walls or obstructions
  • Above ground level
