Ever since the global pandemic began, the internet has become more essential since more people prefer shopping online. On the other hand, many individuals are also still working remotely. 

Meanwhile, many students are still conducting online classes. These are just some of the reasons why many people are now looking for faster internet services.

As of the moment, the majority of the households in the United States only use around 143Mbps internet speed. Although this is the case, many ISPs claimed that they are receiving more demand for high-speed tiers. 

A few years ago, internet speeds are not much of a big deal since many people didn’t need them. Aside from this, some individuals also find faster WiFi services quite expensive. 

But, a new survey revealed that more households in the United States are increasing their connected devices. Back in 2020, the average household connected device is only 10. 

However, this number increased as more people tend to work at home and conduct school activities remotely.  

ISPs Offering Multi-Gigabit Internet Services

Right now around eight ISPs are offering multi-gigabit internet services in the United States. These include AT&T, Google Fiber, Verizon Fios, Ziply Fiber, and other internet service providers. 

But, only two of them are offering WiFi speeds up to 5Gbps. These are specifically AT&T (AT&T Fiber 5000) and Ziphy Fiber (Ziply Fiber 5 Gig). 

As of the moment, 5G is still the fastest internet speed available in the market. But, News 18 reported that the 6G WiFi speed might soon arrive around 2028. Once that happens, there’s a chance that ISPs will also adopt this faster internet speed tier. 

In other news, a massive internet outage in Europe happened because of a new cyberattack. Meanwhile, some experts claimed that old internet routers should be replaced.
