From binge watching to video chatting, can your internet keep up?
SPONSORED — You probably used the internet, perhaps a lot, before COVID-19 hit, but that usage has likely skyrocketed since you’ve been stuck at home. In fact, overall internet use has gone up.
“As millions of people go online for entertainment and more, total internet hits have surged by between 50% and 70%, according to preliminary statistics,” Quartz. “Likewise, those who took deliberately relaxing breaks were better off than those who, when ‘resting,’ had trouble separating themselves from their work.”
So, how is everyone in your household supposed to get online to do the work they need to do and to relax and have fun? After all, there may be times when, between all your family members, you need to be able to check messages, attend video meetings, and stream at the same time.
“With the coronavirus causing many people to work from home, internet service may seem sluggish,” according to CenturyLink.com.
“With speeds up to 940 Mbps, now you can do more than you ever thought possible. It’s more than just speed — it’s new possibilities,” CenturyLink says.
