With the emphasis on being together and enjoying old traditions, technology isn’t always the first thing on our minds when thinking of the holidays. In fact, in past years, you may have been the one insisting that everyone put their devices down and truly focus on enjoying the company of those around them.

However, the last couple of years has taught us that broadband access and technology are crucial to living and participating in society. In many ways, technology has actually brought many families and friends closer and allowed them to stay connected despite circumstances brought on by the pandemic.

To give you a better idea of how technology can help you enjoy the holidays and maximize the feeling of togetherness, here are some things you can do effectively with a strong fiber connection.

Snuggle Up to a Movie

Relax and get into the holiday spirit with some great Christmas movies! One way you can spend time with your loved ones during the holidays is by snuggling up and watching a classic film, and enjoying each other’s company. However, there is nothing more frustrating than when you’re watching a movie with the family, an important scene is happening, and then the video freezes, buffers, or cuts out. If you want to get smooth video streaming, consider boosting your internet signal.

Host a Virtual Meeting

You can actually see your family and friends via Zoom, Skype, Facetime, and other video conferencing platforms with a strong internet connection. Although it may not be as good as seeing them in person, being able to talk, laugh, and celebrate with them is still special, even if it’s on a screen. In addition, a reliable connection such as the one Bascom Communications provides will allow you to avoid any lagging or buffering during your virtual meeting.

Take Your Gaming Experience to the Next Level

Many people are home more during the holidays, and some tend to wind down by enjoying video games during their time off from school or work. Whether you’re a long-time gamer or newcomer, you need a fast internet connection to play without the frustrating buffer problem.

Test Out Your New Gadgets

Think about all of the new, wrapped gadgets under your tree that will require high-speed internet. When you’re busy shopping for those Christmas gifts, the last thing on your mind is the speed of the internet you will need to support those new gadgets. A strong fiber connection will allow you and your entire family to enjoy 

As you can see, high-speed internet access will provide a more stress-free holiday where connecting is easy and fun.
