Apartment Living BlogApartment Living › The Need for Internet Speed

Remember when you had a dial up internet connection and then one of your friends got this new thing called “cable” internet and it was the most amazing thing you had ever seen? How could it possibly be so fast? Why doesn’t it make ridiculous sounds while it tries to connect? It seems like a million years ago that we had to wait for slow internet connections; however, there are still areas with faster and more reliable speeds that could boost your productivity. It all depends on what exactly you are looking for out of your internet experience.

Charlotte, North Carolina has some of the fastest download rates in the nation. The average download rate is 10Mbps which is well above the national average. While apartment hunting in Charlotte, you’ll have 6 internet providers to choose from (some of which have download speeds as high as 100mbps)! Whether you are a business professional, full time student or simply surfing the internet, if download speeds are important to you, then Charlotte, North Carolina has got you covered.

In most areas, a “cable” internet connection can be bundled with your cable TV package, as well. In most cases, bundling your 2 services will save you some serious cash. Plus, you’ll only have to pay one bill a month instead of keeping up with 2 separate payments. Of the 6 major internet providers in Las Vegas, Nevada, 3 of them have the option of bundling cable TV service with your internet service, allowing you to pick and choose which service best fits your needs. Save yourself some money and check out the bundling options in your area to see what is offered.

If you are a business owner, or run your own website, you know how important upload speeds can be. Without solid upload times, your business or online store could crash and burn during high internet traffic times, causing people to look elsewhere for their services and needs. If upload speeds are important to you, look no further than New York City. Of the 5 major internet providers in the city, some allow upload speeds of up to 25Mbps with a fiber optic connection which means you will have a constant, steady upload speed no matter how many other people near your home or online. It will be a dedicated network just for you, and that could be a huge boost to your business.

  3. You forgot every city with Google Fiber in it! With fiber optic speeds of up to 1000mbps (that’s a Gigabit folks) and the ability to bundle TV with it at those high speeds for only $120/month NO CONTRACT (or $70/mo for just the net), any city with Google Fiber is a no brainer! Some of those cities include Provo, UT, Kansas City, MO, and Austin, TX.
    • Hi Wess! You are correct… this article was written before Fiber was widely available. We will definitely update this article. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Hi, my husband, myself and my daughter are all disabled. I’m really looking for a two bedroom apartment that is pet friendly. We have a blue healer who weighs about 30lbs.
    I’m looking for a place where my husband will not have to mow the lawn or shovel snow. He’s 48 years old and has congestive heart failure. My daughter had cerebral palsy as well as a heart condition that I passed on to her. I can’t do steps. I’m really having a hard time finding a place that we can share together. I’m in Michigan and looking for a place in west Michigan. We live in grand rapids right now but I think we need a change of scenery like maybe south west lower Michigan. Can anyone help me with this? I have not had to hunt for an apartment in 22 years. I’m lost!
