With the holidays quickly approaching, we all want to skip the work involved and dive straight into the festivities. None of us want to lug a prickly, sap-covered tree into our home, but we’re happy when we see the twinkly lights on it. These feelings are entirely understandable — especially with the year we’ve all had. We deserve some relaxation and fun this holiday season. And since the season flashes by so quickly, ACE Fiber is here to give you the speed you’ll need to make every moment count. Ditch the hassle of high latency video buffering and constant router reboots. Enjoy a low latency internet connection that provides you with lightning-fast video streaming and online gaming instead. The residents of Alcorn County deserve to experience low-stress holidays filled with joyful memories this year. Slow down when you want to slow down this holiday season and not when your internet connection makes you. Here are three ways your online festivities will be lightning-fast and low-stress this season with top-speed fiber internet.
Stream Video with No Lag
Movies give us a much-needed escape during difficult times. Nothing snaps you back into reality faster than the image of a loading wheel. Buffering completely breaks your concentration and takes you out of the moment, and a slow internet connection is undoubtedly the culprit. Thankfully, those loading wheels are becoming a problem of the past with fiber network installations. No more awkward silences when your family is finally sitting down together to enjoy a movie, and the dreaded wheel appears. Allconnect.com offers advice on how to improve video streaming and concludes that “though each platform has its own [internet speed] recommendations, in reality, you might need more than that.” They suggest that it’s probably time to “upgrade your internet connection,” and “in general, fiber optic offers the best speeds.” Why not give you and your family the gift of time this holiday season? It’s the perfect time to upgrade.
Quick Access to Online Games
Speaking of presents – with fiber internet, you can open some of them almost instantly. That’s right – you can play online games sooner. When it’s time to escape reality entirely (whether you are gaming with your family or solo), that time is precious. According to ctctele.com, about 90% of game sales are downloaded and, “the average game download is around 50 GB. Over a 1 GB fiber connection, you could have a new game ready to play in just 7 minutes compared to a 10MB connection, which would take 12 hours.” ACE Fiber offers 2 gig speeds so that you can download games even faster. With fiber internet, there’s no more sitting around and waiting for your virtual adventures to begin.
We all need some time to ourselves during the holidays too. So, feel free to take a break from your loved ones and game solo because there’s no need to worry about how many devices are online simultaneously with fiber internet – the speed stays the same. Bryan Westover of Tomsguide says it well:
The biggest bottleneck in-home connectivity is presently the internet connection, and as we add more uses for it – like Netflix streaming, gaming, and [a] myriad of the best smart home devices – we’ll need faster connections with more data.
But we don’t have to be bottlenecked anymore. ACE Fiber delivers the daily demands for speed that multiple home users and devices need today. High-speed internet shouldn’t be a futuristic concept. It’s available to our residents today. So start celebrating early this year and give yourself the gift of more time to enjoy the things you love with less redundancy. The holidays are too short to let them buffer.
