Up to 20 Mbps seems small compared to offers of 100 Mbps or even a full gig of Internet. But did you know that, according to Netflix, you only need 5 Mbps to watch your favorite shows in high-definition video? If the occasional binge-watching is your style, this basic broadband internet is your speed.

Of course, a connection of up to 20 Mbps is a good Internet speed for email, social media, and any other typical Internet task. It’s also a good Internet speed for casual gaming. If you live in an apartment or condo with one other person who also enjoys streaming, surfing, and gaming from a laptop or phone, this download speed will perfectly fit both of your needs.

Now you know you’ll have all the bandwidth you need to surf the net, stream your favorite shows, and crush the last level of your favorite game, check out our graph to the right to learn more about how this Internet speed will work for you.
