Wi-Fi Speeds Explained
Understanding Wi-Fi Speeds:
The package speed you have chosen (300 Mbps or 1 Gbps) is the maximum speed you can expect to receive, but you may receive less if you have your device connected through Wi-Fi. Here is why:
Wired vs. Wireless:
Connecting your devices through an Ethernet cable is the best way to ensure you are receiving maximum speeds. When using Wi-Fi, it’s normal for speeds to be lower. But don’t worry — you’ll still have plenty of speed to do everything you need to do.
Technology is Always Improving:
Every connected device — such as your PC, mobile phone, gaming console, TV, etc. — may only handle up to a certain speed and it may be less than the speed you signed up for. This is especially true for older devices. Consider upgrading to newer models for best results.
Coverage is Key:
Add our Enhanced Residential Wi-Fi service to ensure your Wi-Fi reaches every room in your house. We will look for weak signal areas and install Wi-Fi extenders as needed.
Testing Your Speeds:
To conduct a speed test, we recommend www.speedtest.net and to use a newer model PC connected through an Ethernet cable. Testing this way will give you the most accurate results and reflect the true speed of your Sprout internet connection.

Sprout Fiber Internet makes it easy for you to stream your favorite shows through your smart TV or a streaming device. Our reliable, fast connection means you can access the most popular live and on-demand streaming services without needing a cable subscription. Here’s how:
• Access popular streaming services through your smart TV. If you don’t have a smart TV, you can purchase a streaming device such as Roku, Apple TV, or Amazon Fire TV Stick at many retailers or online.
• Pick how you want to stream. Many services such as Netflix allow you to choose from a library of on-demand shows, while others such as Hulu + Live TV give you the option of watching live TV and local networks. You can sign up for one or more streaming services and customize your experience, and some services even offer a free trial.
• With a bit of research and some experimenting, you will find a combination of streaming services that work for you and your family!
