Bandwidth. Speed. Throughput. These terms are not interchangeable. They are interrelated concepts in data networking that help measure capacity, the time it takes to get from one point to the next and the actual amount of data youíre receiving, respectively. When you buy an Internet connection from Spectrum Enterprise, youíre buying a pipe between your office and the Internet with a set capacity, whether it is 25 Mbps, 10 Gbps, or any increment in between. However, the bandwidth we provide does not tell the whole story; it is the throughput of the entire system that matters.
Throughput is affected by obstacles, overhead and latency, meaning the throughput of the system will never equal the bandwidth of your Internet connection. The good news is that an Internet connection from Spectrum Enterprise is engineered to ensure you receive the capacity you purchase; we proactively monitor your bandwidth to ensure problems are dealt with promptly, and we are your advocates across the Internet whenever one of our peers isnít performing optimally.
We provide high-speed, reliable Internet access over our wholly owned and managed core network. And our flexible bandwidth tiers allow you to easily scale from 25 Mbps to 10 Gbps as your business grows. No matter how many gigs your business needs now and in the future, youíll optimize your Internet connectivity with Spectrum Enterprise.
