The Truth Behind High Speed Internet Plans

The Truth Behind High Speed Internet Plans

Internet service is composed of two key parts, latency and download rate A common misconception is that a higher download rate means faster internet – that a 300Mbps service is 12x faster than 25Mbps. A more accurate description is that a 300Mbps connection can handle 12x as many concurrent internet users as a 25Mbps connection.

Download Rate (ie. 25Mbps, 75Mbps, 300Mbps) – the CAPACITY of users that your connection can handle.

Latency (ie. 10ms, 30ms, 90ms) – the SPEED data travels on your internet connection from a particular website.

The speed of your connection (or latency) will change depending on which website or online service you are accessing and through which company connection. AEBC Internet has a robust network backbone built up over 15 years with direct, low-latency connections to the worlds top content sites, including Netix, Youtube, Google and many more.
