What is High Speed?

Published by Clay on 08-22-2013 at 06:55 PM

What is "High Speed" internet?

We have all seen the advertisements at the local coffee shop, hotel/motel, car wash, etc for "high speed" internet access. Some seem fast, while others can barely load a cat video on YouTube.

So, just how fast is "high speed?" By definition, the industry has standards of what is considered fast and what is not. However, those standards aside, what do you consider to be high speed? Is it the time it takes to load that cat video? The number of seconds to post on Facebook? Do you count the Megabits-per-second speed? If you do count the Mbps, what do you consider to be high?
