Wifi Bandwidth 101

Wifi Bandwidth 101

Bandwidth is often mistaken for internet speed when it’s actually the volume of data (Netflix movies, gaming, emails etc)t hat can be sent over a connection in a measured amount of time – calculated in megabits per second (Mbps).

Another way to look at bandwidth is to think of it as a pipe. The pipe size is the speed of your broadband plan.

During lockdown there will generally be more people and devices using the internet. This clogs up the pipe. A remedy to fix that would be to increase the pipe size (Upgrading the plan to a faster one).
