How to choose the right internet provider
It shouldn’t be difficult to find the right internet provider. There are a few things you need to consider before buying an internet subscription. These are:
- How fast internet do you need?
- How much are you willing to spend?
Generally the more you pay the higher internet speeds you will be able to get, therefore it’s important to figure out how much you are willing to spend. For a good internet connection you will mostly likely need to spend at least 200 Danish kroner a month.
How fast internet do you need?
A very important factor to consider before choosing which internet you purchase, is to understand how big your need for internet is.
How fast internet you need is based on multiple factors such as:
- How many people live in your home and need to use the internet?
- Do you stream or game a lot?
If you live alone and only stream or game a little, then you will need about a 100 mbit/s download speed.
If you live with multiple people and also only stream and game a little, then you will need about 300 mbit/s download speed.
If you live with multiple people and you stream or play games a lot, you will need 500-1000 mbit/s download speed.

Internet types in Denmark, what’s the differences?
In Denmark there are four different types of internet. You can get cable internet(Coax), landline internet(DSL), fiber-optic internet and mobile broadband.
In general we would recommend getting fiber-optic internet as that is the newest technology and therefore have the fastest internet connection and most stable connection.
However fiber-optic internet can be quite expensive. The next best choice is cable internet, where you will get fast internet, but more reasonably priced.
The cheapest option is definitely mobile broadband. It doesn’t have the fastest speed, however it has other advantages.
One main advantage is that it is portable and you can bring it anywhere you want. So if you move house/apartment, you don’t need to buy a new internet subscription.
