Understanding The Internet Needs of First Nation Communities

First Nation communities located in rural areas of Saskatchewan have been challenged when it comes to fast internet, or even having access to any internet at all. Residents of these communities are entitled to the same internet access and connection in order to video chat with family and friends, work or study from home, and stream their favorite shows and movies.

Beaver River Broadband understands these needs and we want to make sure that you choose the right internet speed based on your household needs. 

What Is a Good Internet Speed for Home Use in First Nation Communities?

Choosing the right internet speed plan depends on what you need and want to do online:

  • Basic Browsing: If you’re mainly using the internet for things like checking emails and browsing websites, a speed of around 5-10 Mbps should work just fine.
  • Video Calls: For smooth video calls, you’ll want a bit more speed – around 10-25 Mbps should do the trick.
  • Streaming: Streaming TV is quickly becoming the preferred way to watch your favorite channels in First Nations Saskatchewan. If you love to stream movies and TV shows in high definition (HD), aim for speeds of at least 50 Mbps.
  • Online Gaming: Gamers need a fast connection to keep up with their games. Look for speeds of 100 Mbps for a lag-free gaming experience.
  • Working or Studying from Home: If you need to work or study from home, a reliable connection with speeds of 50 -100 Mbps is essential.

In choosing the right internet plan for you and your family you need to consider the number of family members at home. According to usnews.com “Homes with four or more people using four or more connected devices will certainly want download speeds of 25 Mbps or more. That said, most experts recommend even higher speeds – at least 100 Mbps – for households with heavy internet use.”
