Only a few years ago, imagining a scenario where you would need internet speeds over a Gigabit per second seemed like science fiction. But technology has progressed at an accelerated clip, and even if our future doesn’t include real hoverboards and flying cars, it’s clear we’re already there.
Check out these four huge benefits of multi-gig fiber internet.
Forget 4K screens—8K resolution televisions are already here. The technology has advanced so quickly, there isn’t a huge amount of 8K programming yet, so some TV makers are even using AI to upgrade existing content for 8K screens. And while a large portion of the 8K television market carries a price tag of more than $2,000, some models are about half that cost.
Work faster, not harder
You can get more done, more quickly, when your technology moves fast. Symmetrical internet speeds—meaning your internet connection can upload and download information at roughly the same speed—are crucial to keeping your video calls from lagging, and faster speeds overall will help you move through the cloud with more agility than ever.
Gamers can compete
Internet speed is measured by the bytes of data transferred every second, but esports is about milliseconds. If you’re gaming to win, the most important variable is your internet (we have that on good authority). Gig-plus symmetrical speeds with low latency will give you a competitive advantage over gamers who haven’t made the jump to the latest speeds.
We can’t predict the future, but we can make some educated guesses—and it’s a safe bet that you’ll need much faster internet speeds when you get there. We’re only two decades removed from dial-up modems, and now we can download, stream and watch movies in theater-quality resolution on handheld devices from anywhere. Just imagine what’s next.
We’re offering speeds up to 8 Gbps through C Spire Fiber. Check here to see if it’s available for your home.
