If you’re very unsatisfied with your current Internet download speeds and are itching for an upgrade. Then why not move to Minneapolis where you can now get 10Gbps Internet Speed through US Internet for $400 a month? That’s right, US Internet is now offering what is being dubbed as “the world’s fastest Internet”. The average consumer sees a 30Mbps download speed, generally good enough for most consumers, but if you have $400 a month to spend, you could be getting 300 times the capacity.
US Internet doesn’t mention the equipment needed to actually receive the 10Gbps speeds to your home. They may be able to produce such speeds but the hardware on the users end needs to be able to disperse that level of speed. It’s very possible that US Internet will provide a Gateway that can handle those speeds included in the price, at least you think they would, but prepare to upgrade your hardware to make use of those speeds. Google is already offering Fiber speeds of 1Gbps in a few cities across the US but that’s still 10 times slower than what US Internet is offering (but also cheaper).
Often times consumers are seeking faster speeds to accommodate things like heavy media streaming and online peer-to-peer gaming which takes a decent amount of bandwidth. If you’re an average consumer who watches Netflix and surfs the web, 10Gbps is overkill and really a waste of your money. Netflix recommends a 25Mbps connection to stream their Ultra HD content and really anything between 25 and 50Mbps is going to work just fine for most consumers. It’s pretty impressive to be able to push a 10Gbps connection but $400 is a car payment for many regular consumers and just not worth that kind of money right now. As the technology continues to grow and spread you will see pricing come down and level off and I am sure somewhere in the future we will have an actual need for such speeds but right now it’s more of “look what I can do” announcement.
