Calculating the value:
find your cost per Mbps

At Fibre Heroes we understand that when choosing a broadband provider, cost-efficiency plays a crucial role in your decision-making process. Our innovative value per Mbps tool allows you to calculate the value of your broadband plan compared to our ISP’s plans

What is value per Mbps?

Value per Mbps is a metric that allows you to determine the cost-effectiveness of your broadband service. By calculating how much you pay per megabit per second (Mbps) of speed, you can compare different broadband plans and make an informed choice that aligns with your budget and needs. Our Value per Mbps tool takes the guesswork out of evaluating pricing structures, ensuring transparency and empowering you to make the best decision for your internet requirements.

How does it work?

Using our Value per Mbps tool is simple. Just enter the monthly cost of your broadband plan after your speed has been calculated. Our tool will then use your monthly cost and your download speed result to calculate the cost per Mbps for you, giving you an accurate representation of the value you’re getting for your investment. It’s a quick and efficient way to assess different plans and find the one that offers the best bang for your buck.

Understanding Upload/Download Speeds and Ping Rate

Upload speed

Upload speed refers to the rate at which your internet connection can send data from your device to the internet. It is crucial for activities such as uploading files, sharing content on social media, video conferencing, and online gaming. If you frequently work with large files, participate in video conferences, or engage in other bandwidth-intensive tasks, a higher upload speed is beneficial to ensure smooth and efficient data transmission.

Download speed

Download speed, on the other hand, represents the rate at which your internet connection can retrieve data from the internet to your device. It directly affects activities such as streaming movies and TV shows, downloading files, browsing the web, and online gaming. A higher download speed allows for faster loading times, smoother streaming experiences, and quicker downloads.

Ping rate

Ping rate, also known as latency, measures the time it takes for a data packet to travel from your device to a server and back. It is typically measured in milliseconds (ms). Ping rate is crucial for online activities that require real-time interaction, such as online gaming and video conferencing. A lower ping rate indicates a more responsive connection, minimizing delays and ensuring a smoother and more enjoyable experience. For gamers, a low ping rate is particularly important, as it reduces lag and provides a competitive edge.
