What Gigabit Internet Can Do For Your Family

posted in: Atlantic Broadband | 0

It’s an easy picture to paint: Your kids are on their phones, your spouse is surfing the web and you’re streaming Netflix on the TV… and then the dreaded buffering screen shows up. If it’s not on the television, someone is getting it on their respective screen. Up until now, it’s just something you had to live with – you have high-speed internet, but it’s not built to handle your family workload.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Enter Atlantic Broadband’s Gigabit internet service, GigaEdge.

While the old standard of speed might have been 250 Mbps/20 Mbps, GigaEdge offers unparalleled 1 Gigabit download speeds and 1,000 Mbps/50 Mbps upload speeds. To put that into perspective, GigaEdge lets you download a two-hour HD movie (4 GB) in a whopping 32 seconds or email 500 digital photos (250 MB) in just 40 seconds.

GigaEdge is great news for:

Families with multiple WiFi-enabled devices

Nowadays, family quality time often occurs around a screen, be it a kid’s phone as they show you a funny YouTube video, a TV that’s streaming an Amazon Prime show, or a laptop as teens ask for help with a homework assignment. In fact, a recent study showed that more than 28 percent of U.S. homes use 10 or more internet-connected devices on a daily basis. With GigaEdge, all of those devices will experience faster speeds and fewer service interruptions.

Families that constantly stream or play online games

If your kids are all but glued to their screens playing games while you’re trying to watch the latest episode of your favorite show on Hulu, odds are you’ve been hit with the dreaded “loading” screen. Your internet is struggling to keep up! With powerful GigaEdge internet in your home, you’ll never have to deal with that nuisance again. Your viewing and gaming experience can go to the next level!

The coolest home on the block

If you’ve always wanted to be the cool house in the neighborhood – you know the one we’re talking about – GigaEdge will help you get (or stay) there. Your kids’ friends will flock to your home after school to finish homework, or more accurately, play on the computer, and your friends will want to come over to watch big sporting events or award shows. Don’t let slow internet speeds hold you back from being the house everyone visits.

Anyone who regularly works from home

There are benefits and struggles to the solo office experience. While the peace and quiet is nice and the commute can’t be beat, a home network that drops conference calls as you’re logged into the company’s VPN or downloading large Excel document isn’t working as hard as you are. GigaEdge ensures that you’ll never miss a beat, even if you’re thousands of miles from your company’s home base.

Gigabit service is 100 times faster than today’s average internet connection. Even if you’re not streaming or gaming regularly, average users will be able to download 100 photos or 100 songs in just three seconds. In other words, it’s a game changer!

Atlantic Broadband is the ninth largest cable operator in the United States and the only internet service provider working to offer Gigabit service to its entire coverage area. Customers can look forward to lightning-fast speeds which means crystal-clear picture for both streaming and gaming experiences. Pricing starts at just $79.99/month for new residential customers.
