What is a good download speed?

It’s a toughy, and honestly, it completely depends on how you (and how many other people) use your internet connection.

A good download speed is one where Netflix doesn’t take ages to load, YouTube plays without buffering and everyone on your broadband is happy it’s working 24/7 – no waiting, loading, no freezing, skipping and no frustration!

Notice we didn’t say a number like ‘40Mbps’ or ‘300Mbps’. That’s because a good download speed depends on how your broadband will be used and by who!

Every connected device, from phones and tablets to Alexa, Google Home, Smart TVs and game consoles, increases your bandwidth demands.

Thankfully, Full Fibre Broadband futureproofs your home with more potential bandwidth than you’ll ever need (probably)!
