What speed is right for your needs?
Use the two charts below to get a better understanding of how you and your family use your internet connection. As a reminder, a device connected to your internet or Wi-Fi may still be drawing some bandwidth (speed), even if you’re not currently using it. An example, your Google Home/Amazon Alexa, is constantly ensuring it’s connected to the network in anticipation of your next request.
The first chart was provided by research by the Federal Communications Commission in the United States and is compatible in Canada based on usage. The second, is the speeds available from Quadro. Please note that Fibre (Gig) service is not available in all areas; speak with one of our Customer Service Representatives to confirm your options. The number of users will fluctuate per family, based on individual needs. Both are provided to give you the ability to make your own assessments.
Compliment your internet service with a wireless router. Add our managed WiFi experience to your home and our Quadro support team will support your wireless network in your home at no additional cost.
