25 Mbps Satellite Internet Speed
Easily meet your online necessities and monthly budget with a basic Viasat satellite internet plan.
Is 25 Mbps fast internet?
25 Mbps satellite internet service accommodates small households or individual internet users that operate between 1-3 devices daily. According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), 25 Mbps download speed with 3 Mbps upload speed is considered “high speed” internet.
A 25 Mbps connection allows for basic internet activity, such as 1080p HD video streaming. Larger households and more devices require a faster speed. With 25 Mbps satellite internet speed, you’ll easily be able to carry out daily tasks and pastimes, including:
Light 4k video streaming
Instant web page downloads
A 25 Mbps plan provides sufficient upload speeds for quality one-person gaming, particularly on mobile or smart devices. Your game should run smoothly no matter where you play in your home.
25 Mbps internet speed streams HD and 4k videos. Watch Netflix or YouTube on one central device without worrying about buffering or interruptions.
Working From Home
Set up your one-person office easily with 25 Mbps. Search the web, share files, and send emails with virtually uninterrupted internet access. Your satellite internet will also support web conferencing on one device.
Where 25 Mbps internet stands
25 Mbps is a good launching point for internet service, settling comfortably in the space between too fast and too slow. Those who consider their internet activity light or moderate will find 25 Mbps internet reliable.
25 Mbps may be on the slower side if you have more than 3 web-enabled devices to support. Activities involving gaming with multiple devices, constant HD video and content streaming, and heavy file downloading or sharing will likely require a faster internet speed.
Support your streaming activity with 25 Mbps
25 Mbps is the recommended speed for basic streaming like watching movies on Netflix or keeping current with online news sources. However, if there are more than a handful of devices operating at once under the same roof, it may weigh heavily on your bandwidth and, on certain networks, subject you to possible overage charges.
For the right sized household, 25 Mbps satellite internet delivers crystal clear video resolution and buffer-free Spotify playlists all day, every day. With the right speed, you can focus on streaming the things you enjoy.
The perfect internet speed is out there
Finding the right internet speed can be tricky—a lot of factors go into nailing down the proper bandwidth for your particular household. You don’t want your speed to come up short and be unable to support your connected devices. But you also don’t want too much bandwidth—why pay for speed you don’t need?
