Minimum Speeds for Online Video Streaming

While all of our available internet packages support video streaming, faster speeds provide better support and are likely necessary when trying to watch multiple videos at the same time.

Here are the top video streaming sites and their published minimum speed requirements.

Netflix
Minimum 500Kbp/s, recommended minimum 1.5Mbps
3Mbps for SD streaming
5Mbps for HD streaming

You can adjust your Netflix streaming quality through your account (must be logged in)

 Amazon
900Kb/s for SD
3.5Mbps for HD streaming

Youtube
500Kb/s to 1Mbps minimum

Hulu
1.5Mbps for SD
3Mbps for HD

Factors other than available internet speed may affect one's ability to stream video. Generally speaking, it's better to stream online video using devices that are plugged into your router directly to avoid speed losses over WiFi.
