Upload speed is more important than ever

By now, most people have a fair idea of how much download speed they need to support their family’s online activities, but upload speed has recently started to dominate the internet conversation, and for good reason. Over the last year, upload usage has increased 56% in the US!*

With more people than ever before online for work, school, video conferencing, cloud services, and entertainment, families are finding that the internet service that may have worked for them before isn’t keeping up anymore.

So, how much do you need?

If you video chat, send videos and pictures, use telehealth services, or livestream video, you’ll want to plan for 3-5 Mbps per activity. Live in a household with multiple users? Make sure to take their activity into account too. Add up all the simultaneous usage and that is the upload speed you need. It adds up fast!
