300MBps

Hello:  right now I am receiving 300Mbps, BUT I am thinking of moving up to the new 600Mbps service.  Would there be any real benefits of changing to a higher download speed?  Sure would appreciate if anyone knows the answer:)

thank you

Re: 300MBps

The only answer you will get if it is worth the upgrade is, maybe. It depends on what you use the network for. If you're mostly browsing or even streaming 4K on 5 or less devices at once, you don't need the upgrade. If you are frequently downloading large files from very fast servers, like Steam games, it will cut down the time that it takes to download quite a bit.

300 Mbit is still very fast by todays standards, and is more than enough for the vast majority of people.

Another factor to consider would be the number of users that you will have on your home network that would be consuming bandwidth simultaneously.
