Ever got annoyed watching the loading icon go round and round due to slow internet speed?
Imagine you are watching the ‘Long Night’ episode of Game of Thrones, the Night King is about to take out his sword to kill Bran Stark, and suddenly the loading icon appears and breaks the link of the moment. Similarly, while playing PUBG or Counter Strike, imagine the internet speed starts to fluctuate, the game starts to lag, and the avatar gets shot. These are common instances where your internet speed could completely ruin the moment.
There are other critical situations where the internet speed holds a lot of importance. For instance, in the share market, if the internet speed keeps fluctuating it would affect the trading significantly, traders would lose their deals and a lot of money if they couldn’t buy or sell at the right moment. Another example could be experiencing a failed transaction at the time of purchase from an e-commerce website/app, due to internet issues, causing the customer to carry out the entire payment transaction again, or even lose the product from their carts. And then, it is an established fact how important internet speed is to be able to book a tatkal railway ticket. The challenges posed by poor internet speed are countless.
