Long gone are the days of dial-up internet connections and that excruciating noise the modem made to announce your arrival to the worldwide web, as you sat there, patiently waiting for a JPEG to reveal itself one pixel at a time. Nowadays, we’re lucky enough to have a huge range of video and audio content available to us in shining HD quality on a variety of streaming services.
Unfortunately, some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) haven’t caught up — internet speeds in the USA rank way outside of the top 10 in the world, with South Korea topping the list. So is 15.3 Mbps really enough to experience the highest quality video and audio?
As the table below shows, if you want to download and watch videos in 4K quality it is recommended to have at least 20 Mbps of sustained speed.
|Video resolution||Recommended sustained speed|
|8K (4320p)||100 Mbps|
|4K (2160p)||20 Mbps|
|HD 1080p||5 Mbps|
|HD 720p||2.5 Mbps|
|SD 480p||1.1 Mbps|
|SD 360p||0.7 Mbps|
|SD 240p||< 0.5 Mbps|
|SD 144p||< 0.5 Mbps|
