5 Reasons Why You Need Reliable Broadband for Your Home


When we say ‘slow internet’ we are pretty sure that at one point or another, we all have experienced the pain of slow internet. Remember the frustration you felt when it took forever to download just one file? Sigh!

Those days are long gone or are they?

With the kind of high-speed internet readily available, one would think our need for speed has been sated. However, we still have daily occurrences of how slow internet drives us to the edge. It makes us wonder why people still stay with internet providers who can’t keep up to their speed.

Sometimes, understanding the ‘WHY’ behind an action helps us make better decisions. Today, we are going to be showing you why you need internet broadband that’s faster than the speed of light.


1. More Bandwidth for everyone

Today, home WIFI is set to accommodate our laptops, mobile phones, smart TVs, WIFI speakers, CCTVs and our smart homes. Most individuals in a household own at least 2 devices that require wi-fi. That translates to mean at least 5-6 devices at home connected to the internet. With that number of devices, it would be abysmal to run everything smoothly at the average internet speed. Having fast broadband would ensure that your household will have a seamless internet experience.


2. Satisfy your Relaxation Needs

Subscribing to streaming services like Netflix, Spotify, Hulu, and other similar platforms shouldn’t be a herculean task, well, that is if you have reliable broadband. Without high-speed broadband at home, don’t expect your movies or TV series to run smoothly and be prepared to rip your hair out of your scalp in frustration. On top of that, with all of us being able to watch Full HD, even 4K quality videos now, it’s key that high-speed broadband is present at home, with obvious reasons.


3. High-Speed Broadband is now Affordable

A Lot of us are guilty of withholding ourselves back from enjoying something good (like super-fast broadband) because we believe that it would come at an extravagant price. What if we told you that this mindset is obsolete, and that high-speed broadband is super affordable? At a price of N10,800 for 500Mbps, you can get high-speed broadband for your home now!


4. Superfast Upload Speed

Sometimes we place too much emphasis on the download speed of an internet provider. However, internet speed is more than that. You need to consider the upload speeds as well, which is how fast your computer sends information to the web. With so many features of the Internet such as file-sharing, video conferencing (skype), and live-streaming, it’s imperative that your upload speed is up to par. You’d want to send in that presentation on time and avoid getting the pesky question “Can you hear me now?” when you call your distant relatives. Another important factor to consider is latency, which affects Internet speed. This phenomenon happens because there will be delays that happen due to the nature of the network, and how much traffic they move. The higher the latency, the higher the lag, and the slower the Internet. To avoid that, opt for high-speed broadband.


5. Unshakable Reliability

Have you ever thought why sometimes your home Internet gets very slow, then after a few minutes it resumes its normal speeds? Perhaps it’s about time you went 100% fiber. Fiber optics Internet can transmit speeds with little to no problem, making it the most reliable option when you’re doing anything with the Internet, be it watching your favorite series, or even playing your best in Dota 2.
