I have been in this spot when I just thought when will this ever happen. Little did I know that the information that is loaded per second can make your day less tolerable. It is worth it to get the higher internet speed up to 10-12 bit per second. If you are dealing with a lot of files and bouncing messages all day log this can help you be more productive.
In today’s hectic world, being stuck in the slow lane of the information highway is no fun at all.
If you find your Internet connection is moving at a crawl, there are a couple of websites that can help you figure out your upload and download bandwidth.
www.Speed.io - An easy-to-use website that includes ping time, number of connections made per minute and other useful diagnostics.
www.Speakeasy.net - Another super-simple speed test that takes less than a minute.
Either site will enable you to compare your Internet connection rate to others in your area. Remember, uploads and downloads differ dramatically based upon the type of connection, geographical area and surrounding usage patterns.
Commonly cited performance winners range from 5.5 megabits per second to more than seven megabits per second for downloads and slightly less for uploads.
If you discover that your connection is lacking, contact your Internet service provider. It’s often an easy fix and it might not even require an appointment.
