What speeds do I need?

  • Our introductory plan of 25/25 Mbps suits 1-2 users, where usage is largely recreational (mainly used for emails, news and browsing with occasional video streaming).
  • Our 50/50 Mbps plan is suitable for 2-3 users and is advised as a minimum if streaming 4K video content.
  • Where significant cloud-based activities, video conferencing, and/or gaming is concerned, speeds of 100/100 Mbps and upwards are advised.
