What is internet bandwidth?

Bandwidth is akin to the lanes on a highway, determining how much data can flow through your internet connection. Just like wider lanes allow more cars to pass through simultaneously, higher bandwidth enables faster data transmission. Lanify provides an opportunity to monetize your underutilized bandwidth.

Through leveraging your unused internet bandwidth, they conduct market research or perform tasks like web scraping for AI training. This grants buyers access to services they might otherwise not reach, all while you earn passive income.

What factors contribute to the network score?

Factors influencing network score:

  • Geography: Certain regions exhibit higher demand for bandwidth.
