Internet Service Providers are not created equal. They differ in the speed they offer, what they include with their service, and primarily they will differ in price. When you choose GiGstreem, you will quickly see that we are the best offer out there for your community internet service.
- Higher Internet Speed – We offer flexible user provisioned speeds. 150Mb download speed on the bottom tier. This speed is often the top tier option with most internet service providers for which they charge top tier pricing. GiGstreem’s top tier download speed is a super-fast 10 GiG. However, download speed is only half of the picture.
- Symmetrical Speeds – Other than pricing, the most significant difference between providers is symmetry. Symmetry relates to how computers talk to each other. It is much like a phone call. You dial the number, your friend answers, and you begin a conversation. When you talk to them, you are uploading info, when they reply you are downloading info.
To ensure the highest quality, you need to take both upload and download speeds into account. Any delay on either end causes lag and information exchanged can be lost or misunderstood. It is the same with an internet connection. If one end of the equation is slower than the other, you will experience ‘buffering.’ You know this better as that swirling circle, and your streaming stops.
GiGstreem puts an end to buffering. Other internet provider’s upload and download speeds are asymmetrical; they are not equal. For instance, they may offer 25Mb download speed, but their upload speed may only be half of that. GiGstreem internet services are symmetrical. If you have 150 Mb download speed, you will have 150Mb upload speed. If you have our 1GiG download speed, you will have 1GiG of upload speed.
- NO Data Caps – Streaming content uses quite a bit of data. And watching TV and movies with a media player device, like Roku, increases data use exponentially. Many companies place caps on your plan, limiting you to a certain amount of data each month. If you go over this limit, you are charged extra fees, and your speed will most likely be purposely slowed, or ‘throttled,’ to reduce your usage.
- NO forced bundles or hardware – Most providers have bundled packages that you must sign up for. Even though all you want is internet, you are forced to purchase a cable or telephone package to get the “best price”. With GiGstreem you want internet, you get internet. And all our hardware includes Wi-Fi capability, no extra equipment to buy or lease.
