Streaming providers such as Netflix recommend a high-speed internet connection of around 3-4 Mbps per stream for standard-definition video. If your home has more advanced requirements such as for high-definition (HD) video and 25 Mbps for 4k streaming, you’ll need 5+ Mbps per stream.

What internet speeds are required if gaming is my style?
The FCC has made recommendations for download speeds of approximately 3-4 Mbps or higher for online gaming. For ultimate consistency, it is best to connect with an Ethernet cable for your gaming. If your gaming style requires high resolution and fluidity, then you will also need low latency (also referred to as “ping,” or delay before data transfers). DSL, Cable, and fiber offer far lower latency numbers than satellite internet so be aware of that factor. That latency is higher with Satellite since the data has to travel multiple time to and from the satellite and this high latency will negatively affect the real-time online gaming environment.
