Internet speed represents maximum network service capability speed and is based on wired connection to optical network terminal. Actual speeds may vary. Multi-GIG WiFi is the simultaneous use of tri-band 2.4 GHz, 5 GHZ, and 6 GHz radios to connect devices to the Internet. Single device speed is limited to up to 2.4 Gbps. Plan price includes monthly wired service at selected speed, a WiFi 6E-capable gateway where available, and mesh units as determined by IQ Fiber installation technician. Exceptional properties may require additional mesh units to be purchased at market cost.
Many internet service providers will “throttle” their internet speed throughout the day. This happens during busy times where most people are using the internet. Speeds are purposely lowered so that everyone at least gets some bandwidth, even if it’s less that what is promised.
This is an indication that your internet isn’t using fiber-optic. Cable and DSL use copper wiring, which can’t support symmetrical upload and download speeds. If you are frequently uploading content (working from home, gaming, or using cloud services) you’ll want fiber-optic speeds and WiFi 6E technology you can rely on.
When choosing a plan, consider how many devices are connected to the internet at any given time in your home. That includes your cell phone, computers, smart TV, smart exercise equipment, and any other smart devices. The more devices you have connected, the more speed you’ll need. It’s also helpful to have more speed when you work from home or do a lot of gaming from your home.
