Ask yourself these questions when choosing your Internet speed:
What do you use the Internet for?
If you often watch movies and stream 4K content, download big files, take part in videoconferences, or play online video games, you need more speed than others using the Internet primarily to check their email, browse online, access social networks, or listen to music. This is especially true if several of you are doing these things on several different devices at the same time.
How many people use the Internet at the same time?
Do a quick calculation, averaging 25 Mbps per person to cover the basic needs of each member of your household. A family of four can get by with 100 Internet for basic use, or opt for 400 Internet if the entire family is often connected at the same time, if you require more bandwidth for your online activities, or if your number of connected devices increases, as a result of home automation equipment, for example.
How many connected devices are running simultaneously?
Count the number of connected devices and smart objects in your home, including phones, tablets, computers, printers, watches, fitness trackers, TVs, IPTV terminals, wireless speakers, video game consoles, voice-activated speakers, cameras, locks, lights, thermostats, outlets, switches, etc. These devices may not consume a lot of bandwidth individually, but the more you use simultaneously, the higher Internet speed you need.

What is your current Internet speed?
The simple and free speed test by Ookla allows you to determine your Internet access performance by measuring the speed at which data is sent and received.
Internet speed made easy
Internet speed is expressed in terms of Mbps (megabits per second). This is used to measure your bandwidth—the amount of data that can be transferred every second you are online.
Download speed (transferring data from a server to you) is important for downloading files, loading websites, watching videos, or streaming music, for example.
Upload speed (transferring your data to a server) is important for sending emails, transmitting files, making live video calls, or playing video games, for example.
The more people doing high-bandwidth activities simultaneously on a given network, the lower the Internet speed available for each connected device. The amount of megabits per second (Mbps) needed depends on how you use the Internet and how many people and devices are connected simultaneously in your home.
