What is a high-speed internet connection?

This depends on the package you’re on and your household internet demands.

A wireless broadband package with speeds up to 50Mbps (.i.e. Aptus Super Plus) should provide average speeds between 30-45Mbps. This supports most online activity, such as HD streaming, online gaming, web browsing and downloading music at the same time on about three to four devices.
