What is it: the Internet?

Today, everyone needs high-speed and high-quality Internet, but each provider advertises its services in the most seductive way, so making the right choice is quite difficult.

Below are the main criteria for choosing to connect to the Internet.


Different providers provide different maximum possible connection speeds. At first glance it may seem that the higher the speed, the better, but most users do not need maximum speed. The following rules will help determine:

  • Work with text documents and mail - sufficient speed: 8 Mbit / s.
  • Work with documents, mail, plus video chatting, viewing photos, listening to music - comfortable speed: 25 Mbit / s.
  • Work with documents, mail, video chatting, listening to music, viewing photos, movies, playing network games - the required speed: 40 Mbps and above.


A reliable provider is a stable connection and high-quality Internet with the promised speed.But how to determine the reliability of the provider to connect to it? First, familiarize yourself with the history of the company (how long it has been on the market), secondly, find out the geography of the provider’s services (talking about a large company serving most Russian cities or a local small company), and of course, use word of mouth Radio - read reviews about the work of the provider on the Internet, ask around with friends, colleagues and neighbors.

Support service schedule

Of course, each provider has a support service, but their work schedule is different. It is desirable that the provider gave the opportunity to call the support service around the clock, because it may be necessary to learn about the reasons for the lack of an Internet connection at two in the morning. By the way, you can read about it in our article Why the Internet does not work.


There is no need to “rush” to the provider that provides the lowest price, because you can get terrible quality services, but if you choose between two reliable providers, one of which offers tariffs at a lower price, you must, of course, choose an economical option.
