Businesses rely on the Internet more than ever before, for everything from e-mail marketing, sending text files, and browsing the web for products and services, to uploading and downloading audio and video files, transferring large blocks of files to remote (cloud) storage, VoIP (telephone) services, and joining in teleconferences.

The more demands you place on your Internet use, the more bandwidth you need to function efficiently.

A good rule of thumb for basic use (e-mail, web browsing, transferring occasional files) is 1 Mbps for each user in your office. If you want really fast information transfers, consider a minimum of 5 Mbps per user.

The number of devices (tablets, computers, laptops, smartphones), as well as more advanced uses (video transfers, teleconferencing), can drive your minimum need per user to 8 Mbps or higher.
