Stream TV, movies and music
From Netflix to the BBC iPlayer, Spotify to Pandora, streaming content and enjoying a vastly wider range of entertainment can be done with 17Mb. Using streaming services to watch TV or movies and listen to music is one of the most data-intensive activities you can do with on an internet connection. To compensate for different connections, each service has recommended speeds for viewing or listening at specific quality.
You can stream anything up to HD quality with a 17Mb connection. Netflix recommends a 5Mb connection for this.
A 17Mb connection can comfortably stream BBC iPlayer. It streams at two speeds, 1.5Mb for standard and 2.8Mb for high.
A 17Mb connection is more than enough to stream content. Amazon suggests a speed of 900Kbps for standard definition and 3.5Mb for high definition.
