High Speed Internet

South Texas – The speed limit is going up in 2015!

Here’s a sample of the speeds commZoom will offer soon in our markets.

Residential

Consider the trend towards multiple Internet-connected devices in a household or an office environment consuming content simultaneously. These days, the average home has approximately 5 – 9 connected devices. For them to run properly, it takes bandwidth or the download speed. We’re not going backwards. Bandwidth requirements are increasing. The number of services or devices that need a connection is increasing at a dizzying pace.

Business

An office full of Internet connected workers or a home with a few people online at the same time, including those watching over-the-top services like Netflix or Hulu, watching a video on YouTube, or just trying to order new wind chimes from an online merchant is like having a fire hose open inside the house or office. If you’ve got a garden hose coming into the home or office to feed that, storm clouds gather over your online world.

Bandwidth 101

All you really want to know is if your connected devices such as a Smart TV or your computer will do the job you need it to do. Speed determines the quality of the video or movie you’re watching, how long it takes to load a web page, the quality of a video call on Skype, and so on.

Download vs. Upload

The first number commZoom and anyone else shows you, when describing levels of Internet service, is the download speed. They are usually much faster than upload speeds because most Internet users pull things down from the Internet (movies, books, music, e-mails, video, etc.)

If you upload or send out large files or a lot of photos or videos, to the Internet, you’ll want faster upload speeds.

What is Buffering?

When a video or movie is “buffering”, the connection isn’t keeping up with the speeds at which the video, music or other content is being delivered to your screen. When buffering occurs, the device is pausing to collect the data. When/if it catches up, it resumes the playback function. If it happens regularly or repeatedly, it is going to take twice as long to watch the movie or load the page. That doesn’t make for a pleasant experience.

 

Imagine if you filled your car’s gas tank by attaching the nozzle from the pump to a funnel that fed a straw sized opening to the tank. Think how long that would take to fill up! In a way, this is what is happening when your download speed is inadequate. So speed (primarily download speed) = quality of user experience.
