Internet speed, in general, refers to how fast your internet connection is able to send and receive data. There are two types of internet speed: upload and download speed. Upload speed is the rate at which you are uploading content (attaching documents, posting pictures, etc.). Download speed is the rate at which you are downloading content (documents, webpages, etc.). Some abbreviations you may see thrown around when discussing internet speed are “kbps” and “Mbps.” When data is sent or received, it is done so in “bits,” which are very small pieces of data. Kbps stands for “kilobits per second” and Mbps stands for “megabits per second.” The faster of the two is Mbps. So far, the fastest internet speed available is 1000Mbps, and Aura Fiber makes this amazing Gigabit internet available to consumers.
