Why is my internet so slow? Do the math—the Megamath!

Natalie Fleeman By Natalie Fleeman on 9/8/15 1:30 PM

There are three main factors that determine how “fast” or “slow” your Internet is performing:

  1. How many devices you have in your household.
  2. What kind of activities those devices are doing (video streaming, gaming, listening to music, etc.)
  3. How many megabits per second your internet speed delivers (15 Mbps, 30 Mbps, 50 Mbps, 100 Mbps, 200 Mbps)

If you're streaming from several devices (the average household has 11 according to Variety.com) with a relatively small/slow Internet connection (for example, 15 Mbps), your internet will drag if several people are online at the same time.

This infographic helps demonstrate how to calculate the right speed for your home or business, plus it also provides a basic understanding of the fundamentals that affect internet performance, which can lead to a better online experience for you and your family.

Do your internet math and make sure you have the Megapower you need.
