How Much Speed Do I Need?

How Much Internet Speed Do I Need?

Before I came to work at Alyrica, I didn’t have any idea what Mbps (Megabits per second) even meant…I figured, like most people I think, that the higher the number, the faster the internet, and therefore the better the internet experience, right?


An analogy that I heard is that Mbps is like a pipe going to your house. The bigger the number, the bigger the pipe. It is only helpful having a big pipe to your house if there is the water pressure to fill that pipe in a constant stream. What many internet companies do is sell you the big pipe and then turn on a trickle through the pipe, because in reality that is what most people use.

What do you typically do online?

This is the real question to be asked. That’s why we created our plans around this question.

The most common thing that we hear our customers want to do online is web browsing, email, social media and streaming (Netflix, Hulu, etc.)

Netflix for example needs 3 Mbps for DVD quality streaming and 5 Mbps for HD quality. Most people want to have a little bit of headroom over that so that they can watch Netflix and still be on Facebook. Our Standard Plan (up to 8 Mbps) would allow for Netflix streaming on one device and then checking Facebook on another.

If you have multiple people watching multiple streams simultaneously, you would then need the bandwidth for all those streams to come in at once.

Using the above analogy, we hook up the ‘pipe’ that makes sense for what you actually need and have the water pressure to keep that flow up as much and as long as you want (no throttling, no data caps, just straightforward internet…that’s refreshing isn’t it?)

Here are our Residential Plans that are designed to actually fit what you need!
