A real-world speed test story

This is Omar.

Omar and his housemates share a fiber internet plan of up to 940 Mbps and have 360 WiFi to provide wireless coverage throughout the house. When he runs a speed test, he often sees a download speed of about 450 Mbps on his laptop. Knowing why starts with understanding how internet speed and bandwidth work.
