Counting UP Not Down This Year With 500 Mbps

Posted January 8, 2015 by Webpass

We’re speeding on up over here at Webpass! On January 2nd we launched 500 Mbps at no additional charge to eligible residential buildings in San Francisco, San Diego and Chicago. If your building is eligible for the upgrade you’ll receive an email notifying you of the speed upgrade.

There are a few items to remember about the upgrade:

1. 500 Mbps is well beyond the capabilities of most home networking equipment so connect your computer directly to the Webpass jack for the fastest connection possible.
2. Wireless connections are the bottleneck in your home network. Used wired connections for devices that are stationary and require a quality Internet connection like streaming media players, gaming consoles, TVs, and desktop computers. Use wireless connections for convenience only on mobile devices like your tablet and phone.
