What is your internet speed?
The easiest way to find out if your internet connection is up to expectations is to run a speed test. There are countless websites available where you can test your internet connection speed for free.
If your internet connection is indeed slower than what your subscription indicates, it is a good idea to report this to your internet provider and possibly switch if no solution is found.

How do you choose the perfect subscription?
Sometimes a slow internet connection is simply due to a low speed internet plan. In this case, it is recommended to switch to a subscription with higher speeds. In general, a speed of 100 Mbps is enough to surf the web, read emails, download files and stream HD movies without any problems.
However, if you want to stream movies and series, play games and download files on different devices at the same time, your current subscription may not be enough, and it is necessary to upgrade to a higher speed. So it is important to check your personal usage needs when it comes to internet speed and choose the right subscription accordingly.
With internet speeds up to 1Gbps subscribed, you’re in anyway. Today, only Telenet, Orange and Mobile Vikings offer Internet subscriptions with speeds up to 1Gbps. Telenet and Orange do this over the “traditional” cable network, Mobile Vikings over the fiber network. To be able to surf the latest network, you need a fiber optic connection, which is not yet available everywhere. It is being put forward by various operators in full swing.
Differences of up to tens of euros per month: These are the cheapest internet subscriptions with high download speed.
Are there other reasons for slow internet?
If you’re experiencing slow internet speeds that aren’t due to your plan, there are other possible causes, such as problems with your internet modem. Resetting the modem may solve the problem. A new modem can also do wonders for your internet connection. Always check first if your device needs software updates and if there are viruses on your device that slow down your internet connection. Regular virus scanning can solve this problem.
advice: In any case, it is still useful to determine your internet usage and choose the appropriate internet subscription accordingly. Various formats are available, with speeds ranging from 30Mbps to 1Gbps. With our Mytelco.be comparison below, you can easily check which subscription works best for you at the lowest possible price.
