Now that working from home is something more obtainable, the last thing on the minds of most people is the internet connection or until that all important Zoom call drops in and out because of the kids watching Netflix movies in 4k while downloading an Xbox update.

Compared with that extra fast connection you have been accustomed to in the  office, our home internet speeds are probably sluggish and our Wi-Fi connections may be spotty.

So now is a good time to assess and it’s fairly simple.

At the writing of this document, I’d recommend at least 20Mbps per person in the house. So for 4 people, then around 100Mbps. Remember, this is the connection capability speed and not your download limit. For that, and if you can afford it, go for an unlimited download plan – it will save you the headaches in the long run.

If you are having issues still, then here are some good tips to optimise your home or apartment internet set-up.
