Best Broadband Providers for Streaming

Best Broadband Providers for Streaming
Wednesday, December 6, 2017

The best broadband plans for streaming needs to deliver on different aspects to downloading and gaming.  Your broadband plan should have an unlimited data cap for all three of these practices as you will need large amounts of data when you carry out any of these undertakings.  The average New Zealand household now consumes over 173Gb of Broadband Data a month (Chorus Download Stats – October 2017) and if your household is a big streaming household than you are likely to consume even more data than that, especially if there are a number of different devices streaming data.

The most important considerations for streaming other than data caps are speed.  Most broadband providers measure "speed" by bandwidth - the amount of data that your connection can upload or download at any one time.  The most common fibre connection speed in New Zealand is a 100Mbs connection.  This should be able to download 12.5 megabytes of data a second which means it offers plenty of bandwidth to streaming a film or download a large file in a small amount of time.  Even with a high level of bandwidth, at peak times with multiple devices streaming you may suffer from buffering.

The Broadband Compare Awards in 2017 saw Stuff Fibre come out the winner of the Best Fibre Broadband Provider in NZ and Fibre is widely accepted as being the best technology for streaming.  Their plans and support are tailored towards the streaming audience so check out their plans here.
