Internet speed is essential for not only fast but stable, secure and permanent browsing, there we must bear in mind that there are wired or Ethernet networks and wireless or Wi-Fi networks, although both give us the opportunity to access the Internet There are variations between the two due to their type of wiring or technology, methods of use, ranges and much more. Knowing the speed of our network card is important to know if we are getting the most out of our hardware or not. good internet speed is key to:

 

Importance of good Internet speed

  • Faster loading times
  • Less chance of buffering or dropped connections
  • Fast downloads of all kinds of elements
  • Better support for multiple users on the same local Wi-Fi network
  • Fluid and stable connection for live broadcasts and more
  • Internet speeds are measured in bits per second, to explain it better, a bit is the basic unit of digital data, an ISP (Internet Service Provider) offers its services taking measures such as Kbps, Mbps or Gbps, these are:

 

Kbps equals kilobits per second (1000 bits per second)
Mbps indicates megabits per second (1,000,000 bits per second)
Gbps equals gigabits per second (1,000,000,000 bits per second)

 

 

 

As TechnoWikis mentions, there are various technologies and features based on technology and network mechanisms, some of these are:

 

network characteristics

  • Optical fiber which reaches a maximum of 6,000 Mbps (6 Gbps)
  • Cable which has a maximum of 1,000 Mbps (1 Gbps)
  • DSL with a maximum of 100 Mbps
  • 5G technology with a maximum of 1,000 Mbps
