So just when I thought I had some tech savvy, I found out that I was wrong. You see, I never quite understood the whole megabytes per second thing and how it impacted my computer’s efficiency. Confused…Yes, I was.
You see, my livelihood depends on technology as I teach English online to students in China. Well, my computer has been acting a bit wonky lately. I recognized some of the challenges could be on the students’ end, but I couldn’t risk losing clients due to poor internet service.
So I called Spectrum. I was stunned by what an easy fix it was. I just had to increase from 60 Mbps to 100 Mbps. The problem: It’s $15 more a month, but it’s worth it. My computer is already faster, and I’m keeping the glitchiness at bay.
I can’t wait for class tomorrow morning when I can see if it really improves things. If it doesn’t, you’ll hear from me. Until then…
