What's your need for speed?
Now offering symmetrical internet speeds up to a gig
While ultra-high gig speeds become more readily available, most online applications and activities generally demand much less to function effectively. Try our speed estimator test to help discover which internet speed is best for your household or business.
Internet speeds are measured in megabits per second (Mbps) and are calculated based on bandwidth, which is the maximum speed at which you can download data from the internet. Previously, Alliance’s fiber-to-home network provided internet plans ranging from 50-500 Mbps. With a gig, you now have access to nearly 1,000 Mbps.
By the way, Alliance’s internet speeds are also symmetrical, so your upload speed is just as fast as your download speed!
When it comes to finding the internet plan that’s right for you, speeds from 25 to 250 Mbps are generally sufficient for light-usage and general browsing to high-demand homes with multiple users and devices. However, a very small number of users, such as ultra-high streamers, gamers, or business owners with multiple workstations are more likely to benefit from 1 gig internet.
If you’re not sure what speed you need, try our speed estimator test. Current Alliance customers can also contact us to learn more about their internet usage.
At Alliance, because our fiber network is already laid, increasing your internet speed comes without the burying of a second set of fiber in your lawn. Instead, you can upgrade your internet plan over the phone. Other providers will probably need to dig through your yard to install their lines for new internet service.
When more than one connected device is in use at once, more bandwidth is being shared. This can affect the speed of your internet and vary with the number of devices. Try our speed estimator test or contact your team at Alliance to learn more about effectively sharing your internet throughout your home.
Slow load times, buffering, or freezing doesn’t necessarily mean you have poor internet. The age of your router or its placement in your home or business might be limiting your connection. Any of these frustrations could also indicate that your online activity has grown and is maxing out your current speed. In this case, a jump to the next higher plan is required. Call Alliance to learn more about your router or if household usage is exceeding your plan.
Wired gig speeds will be up to 940 Mbps. Wireless speeds can vary depending on environmental factors such as interference, household building materials and customers’ personal devices. Some devices are unable to reach higher end speeds.
