Detailed Guide for Gigabit Fast 900 Plan

In today’s hyper-connected world, high-speed broadband is essential, but 900Mbps doesn’t always mean you’ll get the full speed. In this blog, we’ll explore why and discuss the role connection and IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) in shaping your broadband experience. 

The Need for Speed 

Before we dive into the nuances of broadband speed, let’s first understand what Mbps means. Mbps stands for megabits per second, and it represents the rate at which data can be transmitted over your broadband connection. In theory, a 900Mbps connection should allow you to download 900 megabits of data every second. That’s incredibly fast! 

The Reality of Shared Bandwidth 

However, the key word here is “should.” In practice, several factors can impact your actual broadband speed, one of which is the number of devices connected to your network. When multiple devices are vying for the same bandwidth, the available speed is shared among them. This means that if you have several smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, and gaming consoles all connected to your network, the speed experienced by each device will be reduced.  

Think of your broadband connection as a motorway, and the data as cars. With a single device, data can flow smoothly at 900Mbps, but when more devices join the road, traffic congestion occurs, and the speed at which data travels decreases. This is known as network congestion, and it’s a common reason why your actual speed may not match the advertised 900Mbps. This is why at Gigabit Networks we advertise ‘up to 900Mbps’. Nevertheless, this is why we also suggest our 900Mbps broadband, to try and prevent as much traffic.

 Why Choose Gigabit Network’s 900Mbps Plan? 

A 900Mbps broadband plan offers blazing-fast internet speeds, unlocking a wide range of possibilities and advantages for customers. Here are some cases and additional things you can do with such a high-speed plan: 

  • Smooth 4K/8K streaming and reduced latency for gaming. 
  • Blazing fast downloads/uploads for content creators and remote workers 
  • Boosts productivity for home offices through clear video calls and cloud access 
  • Supports multiple simultaneous users across devices without congestion. 
  • Future-proofed for emerging tech and applications 
  • Enhanced home entertainment with smart devices and live streaming 
  • Allows smooth integration of IoT devices like security cameras and thermostats 

The ultra-fast up to 900Mbps speeds power next gen demands from streaming to smart homes. Get uninterrupted 4K entertainment, gaming, work and more.

IPv6: The Future of Internet Protocol 

IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is the latest version of the Internet Protocol, which is used to identify and locate devices on the internet. One of the reasons IPv6 was developed is because the older IPv4 protocol had limited address space, which was rapidly running out as more devices came online. IPv6 solves this problem by providing a vast number of unique IP addresses, ensuring the continued growth of the internet. 

So, what does IPv6 have to do with broadband speed? Well, as ISPs (Internet Service Providers) transition to IPv6, it can have a subtle impact on your broadband experience. While the transition itself doesn’t directly affect speed, it may introduce changes to your network configuration, which could influence how efficiently data is routed. These changes are generally transparent to end-users, but they are part of the broader infrastructure upgrades necessary for the internet’s continued expansion and stability. 

Maximising Your 900Mbps 

To make the most of your 900Mbps broadband connection, consider the following tips: 

  • Optimize Device Usage: Be mindful of how many devices are actively using the internet at the same time. Streaming 4K videos on multiple devices while gaming and video conferencing may strain even a high-speed connection. 
  • Check for Network Congestion: At peak usage times, network congestion may be more prevalent. Schedule high-bandwidth activities during off-peak hours if possible. 
  • Stay Informed: Keep an eye on Gigabit networks updates regarding IPv6 transition or any changes in network configuration that might affect your service. 
  • Contact Us: If you consistently experience speeds significantly lower than what you’re paying for, reach out to us for assistance. We can help troubleshoot and optimise your connection.
