Microsoft is working to limit Internet speeds and speeds of all internet customers
- by admin
Microsoft is trying to speed up the internet as much as possible for customers, with a focus on bringing speeds of up to 2Mbps to as many as 200 million households across the United States.
The company is already rolling out Internet speeds of between 1.5Mbps and 2Mbps across the US, but is also experimenting with faster speeds, said Mike Ries, the vice president of internet services at Microsoft.
In a blog post, Microsoft said it would “provide customers with an easy and safe way to choose a service plan that meets their needs and performance goals” by adding new internet service packages to the Windows 10 operating system, which it released last week.
Internet speeds have been an issue for Microsoft in recent months.
Last week, the company said that it had seen a surge in data usage on its network, which has caused many Windows 10 customers to experience sluggish speeds.
Microsoft has promised to make Windows 10 more data-efficient, but Ries told CNET that the company has “a long way to go” before it achieves that goal.
Windows 10 is the operating system Microsoft released in May, which features a number of improvements that include improved security and privacy, better support for devices and more ways for users to manage and control their computer.
Microsoft also announced that it will open up its Edge browser, which provides support for internet browsing and video chat, to third-party developers, giving them access to the latest features and improvements in the browser.
