What is the highest speed internet you can get?

When it comes to the internet, fast is definitely better. But what are the fastest broadband speeds in the world, do we need them and how can we get them? We have the answers…

How do we define internet speed?

Speed on the internet is measured in Megabits per second (Mbps) and indicates how rapidly data transfers between your internet service provider’s tower and the device you’re using at home.

Faster speeds mean webpages can load more rapidly, video calls can be smoother and have fewer interruptions, and you can stream movies and TV at a higher quality. Speedy fibre optic broadband also makes smart homes even smarter and more devices in your home will be able to connect and function online at the same time.
