Whether you’re a casual browser, a streaming enthusiast, or running a full-scale home office, we’ve got you covered with our range of internet plans:

  • 25 Mbps 
  • 500 Mbps (Available in select markets)
  • 1 Gbps  
  • 10G Internet (Available in select markets)

This blog walks you through each plan, focusing on what really matters – how these speeds and plans can fit into your daily life. Let’s dive in and find your perfect Race Communications internet plan! 

Please Note: The availability of 10G and 500 Mbps plans, as well as pricing, can vary by market. We encourage customers to check local offerings to find the best fit and value for their needs.

How Much Internet Speed Do You Need?

Mbps stands for ‘megabits per second,’ and Gbps stands for ‘gigabits per second.’ Think of these units like the speed of a car; the higher the number, the faster your internet ‘car’ travels. 

The right speed depends on how you use the internet. If you live alone and primarily use the internet for browsing and streaming, a plan like our 25 Mbps might be ideal. But for a family with multiple devices or heavy-duty usage like 4K streaming or large file transfers, higher speeds like our 500 Mbps or 1 Gbps plans will keep everyone happy and connected. 

How much internet speed do I need for streaming, gaming, browsing, and working from home?

Browsing & Email – Our 25 Mbps plan is a great starting point, offering smooth browsing with minimal loading times.  

Streaming – For smooth, buffer-free streaming in Standard Definition, you’ll want a minimum of 5 Mbps. But if you’re into HD, 4K or have multiple people streaming simultaneously, aim for speeds like our 500 Mbps plan or higher. 

Gaming – Online gaming typically requires 5 Mbps. However, suppose you’re playing in high definition, streaming your gameplay, or aiming to become a professional gamer. You would be better off with greater bandwidth and lower latency found with fiber internet.   

Downloading and Uploading – Regularly download large files or work from home? The higher the Mbps or Gbps, the faster you can download or upload. For instance, downloading a 2-hour HD movie can take about 32 minutes on a 25 Mbps plan, but with our 500 Mbps plan, you’re looking at just one minute and 36 seconds

Think of these recommended speeds as your baseline. Internet activities can add up quickly. For example, if someone is gaming on a 25 Mbps connection, others in the household might experience sluggish performance during video calls or streaming. When choosing the right plan, you should consider the combined demands of all your online activities.
