No Buffering Blues

When it’s time to match your holiday mood with the prefect film, nothing dampens the spirit like slow Internet. You’re in the thick of an action-packed scene from “Die Hard” (yes, it’s a Christmas movie) when your screen freezes. Sure, you know what happens next – you’ve seen it dozens of times. But it’s no less frustrating. The culprit? Someone in the house has just fired up their new video game and your bandwidth is struggling to keep up.

With GoNetspeed’s crazy-fast fiber Internet, these slowdowns are a thing of the past. Your movie experience isn’t interrupted, and the gamers in your family can explore new worlds without slowing down the rest of the house. Pure holiday joy, no buffering blues.
