What Internet Capacity Do You Need To Run Netflix?

Netflix Internet Needs in South Africa

Ah… Netflix, the arrival has been an exciting turn in television for South Africans, and possibly a cheaper alternative to the somewhat expensive TV services on offer. 

While most tech-lovers have already made the transition, many still raise the question of whether it is actually more affordable, and what kind of internet data and streaming capacity do you actually need? 

Luckily for you, Phil has the answers, and he’s about to share his insights: 

"Yay for Netflix, we no longer need to hide our location when using VPN and sneak around with third party apps. All you really need is a fairly good internet connection, and if you are concerned with saving data, all you need to do is set your bandwidth.” 

That’s right, all you need is a decent internet connection to stream a service like Netflix and you do not have to break your bank account. If you sign up with an account like Opera Max there is no requirement to have a landline, which will save you +/-R200 a month. And if you have a fibre line, a 100GB capped package results at R199 per month, letting you say goodbye to the costs of satellite TV and save even more. Then there is LTE and LTE Advanced from Cell C. LTE comes with the added benefit of non needing any cable installation and gives you mobility to take your streaming fast internet connection anywhere you want.

A Netflix streaming test done with Opera Max has said to save users up to 54% on data usage. So you don’t have to worry about an excessive data bill at the end of the month, and you can enjoy good television with zero adverts after a long work-week.
