Is 150 Mbps too much, too little, or just right for your business?

It’s commonly believed that 150 Mbps internet is a bandwidth that falls in between what most people seek. But is it more than what the average user is looking for? Is it less than what a business needs? It’s the ideal broadband speed for many situations and is especially compatible with business setups.

150 Mbps internet is sufficient for a variety of everyday online business applications and tasks. If you’re not sure if it’s the right speed for you, consider some of the things this bandwidth not only covers but makes a breeze:

  • Providing Wi-Fi access to customers
  • Viewing corporate training videos
  • Sending quotes and invoices

A helpful guideline to follow is to get an internet speed that’s twice as fast as you think you’ll need to accommodate the busier times your business will go through. That way, you’re covered no matter what.

Is 150 Mbps internet speed good?

150 Mbps internet delivers download speeds at 17.88 MB/second, which supports a 255 MB operating system update in approximately 14 seconds.

A fiber-optic internet connection provides equal upload speeds. DSL or copper cable lines deliver slower speeds at 5–10 Mbps for uploads, taking more than three minutes to upload a 250 MB backup file.

5 things that affect your internet speed.

  1. The speed you’re paying for. Do you need internet for yourself or for your business? Do you run a small business or a large corporation? Perhaps your family runs a lot of electronic devices and gaming consoles at once. Tailor your speed to your situation and needs.
  2. Your service connection type. Fios is the only internet connection that provides hyperfast speeds and unwavering reliability. A pure fiber-optic connection outpaces cable in every capacity. Fios also provides symmetrical upload and download speeds.
  3. The current load on your provider’s network. Being prepared for how many users and devices will be tapping into your internet is crucial in ultimately determining what speed matches your needs.
  1. Router capabilities. A router acts as a channel to direct data sent to and from your computer. If your router is outdated, overloaded, or incorrectly configured, that data can slow down or become disrupted altogether.
  2. The material your cables are made of. The majority of internet cables are made of two types of materials. Fiber-optic cables use glass to transmit data through light signals, and cable lines use copper which operates much slower and is more prone to interference.
