Which broadband package is ideal for streaming?
With all these movies and TV shows you could stream online, how do you pick the right broadband package to initiate you into binge-watching bliss? You’ll first need to know what internet connection speeds you’ll need for online streaming. While minimum speed recommendations can vary depending on the streaming video provider, an internet connection speed of 25 Mbps will be sufficient to stream 4K Ultra HD videos on providers like Netflix.
However, it’s likely that you’ll need an internet connection speed greater than 25 Mbps if you’re online gaming or sharing large files over the internet while streaming. Having multiple internet users at home will also mean that you’ll need a higher broadband speed.
For most Singaporeans, a 1Gbps broadband package may be best for the moderate to heavy user, as it’s fast enough to support Ultra HD streaming, online gaming and sharing large files – simultaneously.
However, most broadband packages in Singapore will lock you in under a 24-month contract. If you prefer not to commit to a contract (and want to avoid possible cancellation fees), you can consider MyRepublic’s No Contract Ultra 1Gbps Fibre Broadband.
