Moderate Use

(Basic functions plus one high-demand application: streaming HD video, multiparty video conferencing, online gaming, telecommuting)

High Use

(Basic functions plus more than one high-demand application running at the same time)

1 user on 1 device Basic Basic Medium
2 users or devices at a time Basic Medium Medium/Advanced

  • Basic Service
    3 to 8 Mbps*
