How much bandwidth is required for streaming?

The typical bandwidth required to stream Internet videos and television are based upon the users preference of quality:

  • 480p - 3Mbps

  • 720p - 5Mbps

  • 1080p - 8Mbps

  • 4k - 25Mbps

*Note: Most services recommend 1.5-3 Mbps(Megabits per second) download speeds to stream standard definition video without buffering issues. We recommend 3-5 Mbps download speed because our services runs most streams 1080p or better. Take in consideration while streaming the more people connected on the same Internet connection can cause buffering and a higher Internet speed may be required to maintain a smooth and constant stream.
