Mbps, or megabits per second, is the speed of your Internet connection. Think of it like a pipe. Higher Mbps indicates a bigger pipe which will load web pages faster, allow more devices to run on the same connection simultaneously, and enable fast download speeds for music, photos, streaming movies and more.

You may be surprised how many devices you have in your home. The average home has over 5 devices. Do you find yourself wondering why movies and music aren’t downloading quickly? Each connected device uses Internet bandwidth, leaving less for other devices. For example, Netflix recommends a 10Mbps connection for each account streaming to only two devices. Haviland Telephone has the Internet speeds to meet your growing needs. We offer speeds that will help all your connected devices do more, faster.
