The Demand for Data
Internet usage is changing and has been since the invention of the Internet. The demand for data is growing at an extraordinary rate. As technology advances, devices are now requiring more and more data, as well as faster speeds. The same Internet speeds that most of us used ten years ago are no longer sufficient to do many normal tasks.
The way we use the Internet is very different now than it was a few years ago. Many of us are constantly connected to the Internet with a variety of devices including our smartphones. As technology progresses, new devices are designed to make use of faster connections. A few years ago, it could take hours to send or upload a large video file. Now, it can take just a few minutes. In many cases, smaller videos are easily transferred in a matter of seconds. Snapchat is a prime example of this. Users take videos and send them to their friends almost instantly. This was impossible on a smartphone just a few years ago.
Because Internet usage and technology are changing, a good Internet connection is imperative for you to make full use of your devices. Even simple things like email, Facebook, and browsing the web are requiring faster Internet speeds to function adequately. Files have consistently gotten larger and larger since the creation of the Internet and so it is no surprise that increased speeds are necessary to transfer those files and data.
Changes in technology are not the only factor that affect Internet speeds, however. Most people now have a large variety of devices connected to their home network. This means that most households have multiple electronics that are all connected to the Internet. Smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers, and even TVs are all now included in this category. The more devices that are connected to your Internet, the more strain is put on your network. PTCI understands this and works to provide excellent speeds for all of your devices.
