PTCI’s fiber internet plans are symmetrical. This means that you can get 1 Gigabyte download speeds and 1 Gigabyte upload speeds. For many internet service providers, upload speeds are significantly slower than download speeds, but upload speed is just as important as download speed in 2023. Video calls, security cameras, gaming, live-streaming, posting videos or pictures to social media, video doorbells, and working / schooling from home are all tasks that require an upload connection.
There are many benefits to having symmetrical internet speeds. Since more apps and tasks now require you to use both download and upload speeds, a symmetrical connection allows you to work and connect with little interruption or latency. Symmetrical speeds equal greater bandwidth. With asymmetrical speeds, your bandwidth can get clogged up and your stream of data gets slowed, like a dammed river. More bandwidth allows your connection to flow uninterrupted as a healthy river of data.
One of the best benefits of PTCI’s symmetrical speeds is that you get a better value. In other words, you get faster internet for your money. We understand that the demand for data is always rising and our symmetrical speeds were created with the future in mind. If you’re interested in upgrading to faster internet, call us at 800-562-2556 and one of our friendly customer service representatives will help you find out if you’re eligible for a symmetrical speed option.
