Bandwidth Breakdown: What You Need to Know About Your Kinetic Internet at Home

May 07, 2018

It's after dinner. The kids are glued to their social media accounts. You’re binge-watching your favorite TV show on Netflix. Everyone is multitasking on their smartphones. And wham! Your internet speeds slow down, streaming quality starts to suffer and family frustration sets in.

Does this sound familiar?

During peak internet usage hours (typically after 6 p.m.), the popularity of streaming services and always-on devices is likely creating more strain on your wireless internet than you might think.

With the number of connected devices in the home expected to continue growing in the future, the demand for bandwidth — and devices ready to use it — will only increase.

Check out the infographic below, which explains what's happening to your Windstream internet when most of your devices are connected and how you can avoid slower connections during peak hours.

Visit our bandwidth breakdown page to learn more about Windstream’s internet speed options and getting the speed you need.
