Frequently Asked Questions

How do emails travel on the Internet?

Emails travel on the internet through a series of servers and protocols. When you send an email, it first goes to an outgoing mail server (SMTP server). From there, it is transmitted to the recipient’s incoming mail server (IMAP or POP3 server) via the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). The recipient then accesses their email through an email client or webmail interface to view the message. This process involves multiple servers and routing points across the internet to ensure the email reaches its destination.

Peace Power is a provider of high-speed home internet services that uses fibre optic cables to connect to a modem, which in turn provides wireless internet to the home. The modem acts as a bridge between the fibre optic cable and the wireless router, allowing multiple devices in the home to connect to the internet wirelessly. This setup provides a convenient and fast way for customers to access the internet at home.

A good download speed for a small household is at least 150 Mbps. At this speed, you would be able to stream videos in 4K but may experience load times if multiple devices use the Internet at the same time. However, some people may need speeds much higher if they plan on doing activities such as online gaming or streaming movies.

The best security practices for your modem include changing default passwords, regularly updating firmware, enabling strong encryption (such as WPA3) for your Wi-Fi network, disabling remote management, using a firewall, monitoring connected devices, and implementing MAC address filtering. These measures collectively create multiple layers of defense against potential cyber threats, ensuring that your modem and home network remain secure.
