Everything you need to know before choosing an ISP

Every now and then, we think about opting for new internet service – a better one – so as to keep ourselves for wasting away our productivity and work more efficiently. Here are some of the key points to keep in mind when you are choosing your next internet service provider(s). It is not as if you can take this one to the grave, right?

Bad joke. Okay, okay.

However, honestly, there comes a time when we just want to switch either just for experience for better service or merely because it’s too costly.

1. Availability

Not every internet service provider would be available in your area. Therefore, if you came across a really cool ad about a new internet service provider on TV or the internet itself – be sure to check your area in its service provision list. One of the many ways is to go and check it on a website that offers you to compare and contrast various internet services alongside.

2. Affordability

It is no secret that most of us tend to go for something more affordable rather than spending half our salaries on a service. A great thing that pushed me towards Spectrum Internet was that it offered its services at the cheapest prices.

So, the first thing for you to keep in mind is the amount that you can actually spend on your internet service. No need to buy something too good that you can only enjoy for just one month. Plus, most of the time these days prices trump the quality of the products.

3. Speed

Spectrum is certified for gaming by “For Gamers By Gamers”. It clearly indicates that Spectrum offers the exact internet speeds as displayed in the ads. Its download speed is more than 930 Mbps and you don’t have to worry about anything while playing your favorite online games or watching a movie. Nothing can stand between you and your pleasure.

4. Technical Support

Spectrum offers 24/7 technical support. They do not care about the time or rest – they just literally keep up rotating so that we can connect to them at literally any hour of the day. It is my choice if I want to call them up at their number or talk to them via a chat box present on their site. In short, I know they have got me covered no matter the time and day. They never take off!

5. Online Security

While Norton Security is good as well, Spectrum offers the McAffee antivirus security. McAfee in comparison to Nortan is quite because it offers more comprehensive security detail as per an independent lab study. The service also offers you a parental control so you can keep your younger ones in check when letting them use the internet. You can boost the security of 9+ computers using the Spectrum Security Suite alongside inbox protection, spam detection, etc. According to the Symantec Internet Security Threat Report;

  • 76% of websites had susceptibilities that could be hypothetically misused
  • 463K cases of ransomware were noticed last year
  • 229K web assaults were clogged each day

6. Bad reviews, really?

The question that really kicks in at the moment you’re about to make your choice is why does Spectrum has some bad reviews if it is so good. Well, my answer to that is yes, I was paranoid too but did you know that Spectrum is spread across more than 36+ states? If it was so bad why would it grow even?

Moreover, we humans like to rant even if someone breathes. I know that because I do that too. If you still think I’m making it up then go try it yourself.
