Are you struggling to find a complete Internet plan that suits both your streaming and sharing habits? Symmetrical speeds and broadband plans may be just what you’ve been searching for.
By definition, symmetrical Internet allows you to upload and download data at equal speeds. Most Internet providers only offer asymmetrical speeds, where the upload speed is a fraction of the download speed.
Today, heavy Internet users are just as likely to upload as much as they download. In fact, the technology market research firm IDC reported in a study that more than 20 percent of broadband households are “power users” who are frequently online, uploading nearly as much content as they download.
It’s not just “power users” who can benefit from symmetrical speeds. In fact, many “average” Internet users regularly utilize websites that require faster overall speeds. Keeping in mind that 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, 70 million photos shared per day on Instagram and over 350 million new photos uploaded to Facebook each day, it is clear upload speeds are equally important to typical Internet broadband users.
Den Broadband just recently announced the roll-out of symmetrical Internet speeds on their platform. DEN broadband customers can now enjoy symmetrical Internet up to 150 Megs.
“Customers have been asking for faster upload speeds for access to the cloud, gaming and streaming applications, and DEN is committed to fulfilling those needs”.
So what does this mean for the average household connected to a DEN broadband connection?
