How it
works

Your Internet speed determines how much bandwidth you have to run your connected devices. The more devices you have connected, the more your bandwidth is divided up. Also, some devices and online activities require more bandwidth than others. Use the calculator below to estimate your bandwidth use by adding in the activities and number of devices that will typically use your Internet connection at the same time.
