Episode 1793 (13:53)

Sundip from Orlando, FL

Sundip wants to know how much bandwidth he should have. Leo says that it's obviously the most you can afford, but the thing is that the more you get, the more you tend to use. Download speeds tend to be faster than upload speeds with streaming video and other uses. But we're now seeing uploads on the rise as people work and do school from home via video conferencing. So an asymmetrical download speed is becoming the norm. Netflix has a page to help figure out what you need, but Leo says you're going to want at least twice as much or more of their recommendations for more than one person to do separate things online.
