Factors That Can Affect Business Internet Speed

The actual speed a subscriber experiences may vary based on a number of factors including, but not limited to:

  • Variances in network usage
  • The capabilities and capacities of the customer’s computer and/or local area network (LAN) devices such as wireless routers
  • Latency (i.e., the time delay in transmitting or receiving packets as impacted in significant part by the distance between points of transmission)
  • The performance of the content and application providers the consumer is accessing, such as a search engine or video streaming site
  • Performance characteristics of transmissions over portions of the internet that are not subject to Mediacom’s control
