Frequently Asked Questions

A good Internet speed provides at least 25 Mbps download speed and 3 Mbps upload speed. However, we recommend a starting download speed of 100 Mbps and upload speed of 10 Mbps for households with several users connected on multiple devices at the same time – so that you can surf, stream, game and make video calls. The more speed you have, the faster your connection. If you want more bandwidth to share amongst more users and power more devices, upgrade your Internet speed.

There are a handful of factors that could impact or slow down your download and upload speeds:

If your computer is older or out of date, it may affect your transfer rate. Try checking to see if your computer requires updating.

Check your wireless connection. Walls, radios, or increased distance from your router might be causing WiFi interference. Try getting closer to your router or plugging it in directly.

Slow internet speed could be caused by an outdated router or a router placed too far away from your TV or computer. However, if your internet speed is slower than you would like, you can consider a faster speed option, such as Spectrum Internet Ultra or Spectrum Internet Gig.

Internet speed determines what types of activities you can do on the internet. Videos, games and video calls all rely on faster internet speeds.

Good coverage means your device is getting a strong WiFi signal. That strong signal will also deliver as much speed as your device can handle. As you move away from your router, signal strength diminishes, slowing upload/download speeds and reducing coverage. The placement of your router is key to ensuring both coverage and speed for your devices.
