The ‘Mbps’ part is an abbreviation of ‘megabits per second’. It is used as a measure of internet speeds. This is literally the number of megabits your internet or mobile connection can download in a second. 1.5Mbps is not suitable for HD videos or high speed applications.
What can I do with 1.5 Mbps?
A speed of 1.5Mbps allows basic internet browsing and social media use, although your pages may be slower to load.
It’s also enough to watch video streaming services like Netflix and YouTube in standard definition. But you may get some buffering and pausing.
You can also listen to music streaming services like Spotify using a 1.5Mbps connection.
