Speed/Bandwidth (Gbps) vs. Data Usage (GB)?
- 1 Gigabit = 1,000 Megabits
- 1 GigaByte = 1,000 MegaBytes
Storage, or Data Usage, is how much data you download (quantity) and is measured in Bytes.
Speed, or bandwidth, is how fast you get your data (quality) and is measured in bits.
Pierce Telephone DOES NOT LIMIT Data Usage!
Some companies limit how much data you can use. Pierce Telephone, on the other hand, offers different speeds at unlimited data usage.
In other words, other companies let you have the greatest speed (quality), but limit the amount of data (quantity) you can use, whereas PTC let's you
choose what experience you want (quality) and doesn't limit your activities or data usage (quantity).
This translates to having the freedom from having to worry about how much you use the Internet or watch your streaming services on your TV or other devices. Also, you also
have the freedom to choose what quality you really need to enjoy your Internet experience.

If you don't use the Internet that often, or only receive email, you probably don't need a whole lot of
speed to increase your enjoyment. But, if you find yourself waiting for a period of time for websites to load, your streaming videos are
distorted, or sound quality of your music is not very good, you may need to increase your speed rate.
