4 Things to Know When You’re Buying Internet

Buying Internet for your home can be difficult. There are a lot of factors, and let’s be honest, a lot of technical jargon. What exactly does megabits per second or download speed even mean? And what is the difference between copper and fiber?

We won’t get into all the details here, but we will walk you through the really important stuff.

Discover what options are available at your address. You’ll likely have a choice from DSL (internet through a telephone line), internet through your cable provider, internet from a satellite provider, or fiber-optic internet.

What speed do you need? Working out what speed you and your family need when buying internet is the most important step to take. You need to know what bandwidth is and how much you need to make sure your internet can keep up. This  bandwidth calculator provides a custom speed recommendation based on your WIFI usage.

Compare providers. Find out what internet providers offer services in your area. What bundles or options does each provider offer? Are there any promotions that offer better internet service for less money for a certain amount of time? What is the customer service like with each provider?

Are there any hidden costs? There may be hidden costs to take into account when buying internet services. You might have to buy or rent a router or modem from the provider. There might be data caps that slow your internet down once you’ve used your monthly quota. Will your monthly bill double or triple after your introductory offer ends?
