We recently came across a blog post by Trevor Jones, vice president of business development at GWI, where he compiled some quick at-a-glance comparisons between Gigabit and 'regular' broadband.
1. Download a HD movie: Five seconds on Gigabit, 10 minutes for regular broadband.
2. Number of HD movies you can stream on Gigabit: Up to 208 streams. Regular broadband is just 2 streams.
((* Note: In order to achieve gigabit internet speeds you need to have a computer, modem, and AC wi-fi router that support the speed. We recently purchased a gigabit wif-fi router for less than $100 (TP-LINK Archer C7 AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router) and have been pleased with the results.))
While Google Fiber has always espoused the benefits of Gigabit (like this post) we felt that a picture says a thousand words. Below is a terrific infographic from GWI that we want to share with the Charlotte Hearts Gigabit community:
