Speed Simulator

BroadbandUSA’s speed demonstration tool is designed to help you make smart decisions about your data needs. For example, a family of four that regularly streams online content and has children that use the Internet for homework will likely need to make different data choices than a couple who uses the Internet mostly for web browsing and email. The same is true for business of varying sizes and types. The speed demonstration tool lists typical Internet uses and the data requirements. All examples assume a standard, minimum latency connection and are for demonstration purposes only. If you have questions, please contact us at
