How much internet speed do you need?

Netflix taking forever to load? Online games lagging more than ever? Uploads and downloads crawling along at a snail’s pace?There could be a number of different reasons for the slowdown, one of them being that you’re not getting enough speed from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).How much speed do you really need? The answer varies from person to person, but the answering the question always requires some thought. You don’t want to pay for service you won’t be using, but at the same time, you don’t want to deal with buffering videos or slow load times. What should you do?Sure, the ISP’s customer service representative can help you, but given the track record of some cable companies and ISPs, it’s best to do a little bit of research yourself. After all, it’s their job to sell you Internet.
