Are you paying for more Internet than you need?
Could I be paying less for my internet? That's the big question on everyone's mind right now. With the holidays upon us, families across Alberta are looking for small ways to save on their home internet and utilities. With Peace Power, you can get the right plan for your household so you never have to overpay for your internet connection again.
Are you paying for more Internet than you need?
This is one of the most common concerns that we hear people ask before they become one of our customers. Big Internet companies sell plans that are often not nearly enough or more than you could ever want. Chances are you're paying for a better Internet plan than you really need.
That's why at Peace Power we offer our customers more options for Internet plans, so you can get the best deal for your household. The Big Internet companies like to price out plans that are too small or too big, but with Peace Power, we offer a wider variety of plans at different price points so you can get the plan that's just right for you.
Big Internet companies sell plans that are often not nearly enough or more than you could ever want. Chances are you're paying for a better Internet plan than you really need. In this article we will cover some of the most frequently asked questions from our Internet service customers:
- How do I know what Internet plan is right for me?
- How can you tell the difference between a basic and a super-fast Internet plan?
- When is it time to upgrade your Internet plan?
We want people to have the option to buy exactly what they need.

How do I know what Internet plan is right for me?
You can find out what Internet plan is right for you by completing the Internet quiz on our website. Everyone has different needs when it comes to Internet, so why should everyone get the same Internet plan? Ask yourself, what activites does your household use the Internet for?
- Checking Email, Borwsing, & Social Media
- Streaming TV & Movies
- Working From Home
- Downloading Large Files
- Online Gaming
One of the biggest factors when it comes to Internet plans is always online gaming. When it comes to online gaming, Internet speed is a top priority. Especially if you want to live stream your games to share with your community and friends online. The next piece that will impact your Internet plan selection is the number of devices you have connected to the Internet; for small households with a few devices, bandwidth isn't a big issue, but every phone, iPad, game console, desktop, or laptop takes up a little bit of speed. You should also consider the size of your household. Wireless Internet comes from your modem and the position of your modem in your household can affect the quality of your wireless Internet. The last question that we ask our customers is, do you value speed or price more? The fastest Internet plans cost a little bit more but our more cost-conscious customers will find that our smaller plans are often enough. The best part about choosing to go with Peace Power for Internet is that you're never locked into a contract. You can easily switch to a faster plan whenever you need it with no service charge. It's important to us that our customers get the best plan for their needs so we recommend that you take the quiz yourself, pick a smaller plan that suits your budget, and you can always upgrade later.
- Peace 30 is great for people that want to use the Internet for basic activities, like checking your email, reading the news, and browsing online shopping.
- Peace 75 is for people that need to work from home or stream video in high definition from platforms like Netflix and Disney Plus.

Remember, when you're choosing an Internet plan, you need to think about how much Internet do you need? The answer depends on what you want to do on the Internet.
Peace 30 is a great option for people that don't need to do a lot online. We offer great rates on Internet plans at a variety of speeds so our customers can pay for exactly what they need. It's the number one reason so many people are choosing to switch to Peace Power for Internet services.
How can you test your internet speed?
Testing your Internet speed is free and easy, start by following the link to speedtest.net and clicking "Go" to get your results. It takes a few minutes to run but you will be able to see exactly how fast your Internet actually is, and not just the speed advertised by your Internet provider.
How can you tell the difference between a basic and a super-fast Internet plan?
Most people can't tell the difference by the numbers, but they notice it immediately if things start to slow down. Your Internet speed is measured by a few key metrics:
- Upload speed
- Download speed
What does ping mean for Internet plans?
Your ping is your network latency, which measures the time it takes for data to be transmitted from your device to a server to the Internet and back to your device.
What does download speed mean for Internet plans?
Your download speed refers to the speed at which your Internet connection is able to retrieve data from the Internet.
What is a good download speed for Internet plans?
A good download speed for a small household is at least 30 Mbps. At this speed, you would be able to stream videos in 4K but may experience load times if multiple devices use the Internet at the same time.
What does upload speed mean for Internet plans?
Upload speed refers to the speed at which your Internet connection can send data from your devices to the Internet. Your upload speed will impact your ability to live stream content from your home (E.g. Facebook Live, Instagram Live, Twitch Broadcasting, etc.)
When is it time to upgrade your Internet plan?
The best part about Peace Power's Internet plans is that you are never locked into a contract so you can switch plans anytime. If you notice that your Internet is getting slower, the first thing you should do is contact our customer support team to diagnose the issue. Sometimes the issue can be fixed by something as simple as resetting your modem, but if your living situation changes by adding more people or devices into the house, your needs may have changed. We make it easy for you to upgrade to a faster plan whenever you need it.
Make sure that you are not paying for more Internet than you need.
The big Internet providers don't like to offer mid-range Internet packages, instead, you get the choice of a plan with too little and a plan with too much. You will end up buying the plan with too much because it's the better option but you're left overpaying for an Internet plan that you don't really need. At Peace Power, we offer mid-range Internet packages to help you save money on your bills month over month.
