What internet speed do I need?

The internet speed you need depends on your daily internet activities and the number of devices connected to your network. The graphic below shows the baseline speeds needed for some everyday internet activities – but take our speed quiz to know for sure.

What is a good internet speed?

The Federal Communications Commission’s minimum broadband speed standard is 100 Mbps of download speed and 20 Mbps of upload speed, which is enough internet speed to support a small household – but a good internet speed for you will depend on your internet activities and the number of connected devices in your home. It’s safe to assume that you’ll need more than 100 Mbps if you’re a heavy internet user, and for reference, the median home internet speed in the U.S. in February 2024 for fixed broadband was 242.38 Mbps download and 30.68 Mbps upload.

How much speed do I need?

Take our internet speed quiz to find out what speed you need, but we recommend at least 100 Mbps (per the FCC’s new broadband speed standard), but more if you have a larger household or participate in heavy internet activities.

Mbps stands for megabits per second and is the way we measure internet speed. The higher the number before the ‘Mbps,’ the faster your internet speed is.

Both! A bandwidth calculator can tell you how much data you are able to upload or download to your computer. A speed test can help you determine how fast that data is being downloaded and uploaded.
