      Posted by Brianna Cloney on Oct 23, 2018 2:00:00 PM

      When it comes to streaming, most people think of watching video. Using resources like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime TV are very popular ways to watch the hottest shows and enjoy some great movies. In addition to video, streaming is also used for gaming, audio, and social content.

      Essentially, streaming means there is a constant, steady flow of data transmitting over a network. This flow is what allows video, audio, and content to be received. With that being said, it is important to have enough Internet to support all the streaming and surfing you want to do.
