internet speeds and data usage
All our our plans support HD streaming for all major streaming providers. Depending on how many devices your plan to watch at the same time, we can calculate the best plan for you. Netflix uses the following data rates:
480p (SD) – 1.5 mbps
720p (HD) – 3 mbps
1080p (Full HD) – 4-7 mbps
4k (Ultra HD) – 8-16 mbps
Example 1 – A single Television playing a Netflix movie in HD setting. This will use 3 mbps
Example 2 – A single television playing Netflix in HD setting and another device watching Youtube 480p. This will use 4.5 mbps
Example 3 – A single television playing Netflix in 4K setting, and another television playing Netflix in HD setting. This will use 11-19 mbps
We take great pride in offering the very best speeds to our customers. Our network is designed to allow customers to access up to the full speeds allowed in your plan, even at peak times. However, under certain circumstances, you may see speed decreases. These can be caused by a number of factors including (but not limited to):
Adverse Weather Conditions
Overuse Of Service (Clipping)
Network Site Congestion
