Therefore, a true fibre connection ensures you can deliver on work tasks from home while other members finish their online work in the next room.

Here are some of our favourite tips for parents with children in virtual classrooms.


  1. TV


Third, the most popular movies and TV shows are now streamed on platforms, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, that require an internet connection . Often households have more than one member streaming a movie or show at the same time. In order to get the most out of your streaming experience, you will need higher internet speeds. 

Furthermore, research shows that ownership of smart TV’s with these platforms included is only expected to rise. This will be a big incentive for the production companies of your favorite movies and TV shows to release on these streaming platforms. 

The demand for 4K TVs is also increasing as it delivers the highest quality picture for the best entertainment experience. The resolution for a 4K TV uses five times more data than HD video and requires at least 25 Mbps of bandwidth.
