2.5GE (Multi-Gig Ethernet) ports are newer types of Ethernet ports used on some modems and routers. 2.5GE ports support higher connection speeds than the Gigabit Ethernet ports previously used on most devices.

Speed requirements taken from’s How Much Internet Speed Do I Need? guidelines.

1200 Mbps internet is worth it if you use a large amount of bandwidth on a regular basis. It’s also worth it if you share your Wi-Fi with a bunch of family members or roommates. It all depends on your household’s activities and the number of activated devices which could take up more bandwidth and thus require much faster speeds. Today’s average household has 25 connected devices. 1200 Mbps will provide more total bandwidth for your home, which will, in turn, result in better overall performance and happiness for everyone in your house.

1200 Mbps internet is ultra fast and offers huge benefits for your home. If you have multiple devices connected to the internet or individuals accessing the Internet at the same time, 1200 Mbps service will provide more total bandwidth to go around, which will result in a better overall experience for every device and user in your house. 1200 Mbps speed enables you to run all your devices at the same time and have faster downloads, quicker response times, good streaming, better video viewing and more.

You could have everyone in your house streaming Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, Pandora, iHeart Radio, Spotify, and gaming all at the same time! Every person in your home can be doing something on every device – all at once simultaneously in seconds. Or you could watch some future super 8K video service that doesn’t exist yet. And you can brag to your neighbors that yours is bigger, stronger, faster.

Benefits of high-speed internet:

  • Quick downloads
  • Fast load times
  • Lower chance of buffering or dropped connections
  • Reliable connection on video conferencing and livestreams
  • Better support for multiple users on the same Wi-Fi network

Today the average household has 25 devices tied to one Internet connection in the home. These devices can be smart TVs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, printers, home security systems, appliances or game consoles. Higher Internet speeds will offer you an online experience that fits your lifestyle and needs. For the same reason you’d want the latest gadgets – you want the best experience for you and your family. Not to mention you’ll be the envy of the neighborhood.

Ask yourself: do you want to curl up on the couch and watch a show you recorded on your TiVo earlier in the week…while someone else in your house is on a computer catching up on the day’s events…and another is watching a trailer for the next superhero movie then jumps to the latest TikTok craze…while someone else is watching Stranger Things on Netflix…? All while you are simultaneously doing a software app update on your Tablet and smartphone – and all of you are doing these things faster than ever.

With 1200 Mbps you can do all this without giving it a thought – it’s fast, it’s awesome. Your life doesn’t come to a halt while waiting for that frustrating spiraling circle or hourglass to disappear or having to shut everything down and start it back up. You just get quality, fast, reliable streaming – for everyone, on all your devices.

These specifications/configurations are known to work. If you do not have these, you may not get the most from your 1200 Mbps plan:

OS Windows 10 Mac OSX 10.8
Processor Intel Dual Core i5 AMD Ryzen 5
Hard Drive 64GB 64GB
NIC (1.2G) 2.5GBASE-T 2.5GBASE-T
