More on satellite internet speeds

When it comes to internet speeds, you want to know what will get you the most entertainment. Both upload and download speeds are essential to quality streaming, gaming, and browsing. An upload speed refers to actions like posting photos to your social media, sharing a video clip with your friends, or uploading a file to the cloud.
