Each broadband provider can offer different download speeds - it's worth checking a few internet service providers to find out what services they offer in your area. Click the 'Get started' button and we'll take you to the page to see what speeds they can offer in your area.
If you're a light internet user who doesn't watch catch-up TV (e.g. iPlayer or Netflix) or stream much music and video (e.g. Spotify or YouTube), you probably only need a moderate internet download speed.
Around 10Mb/s download speed should meet your requirements.
If you have a few devices in your household that will connect to the internet simultaneously but they are only using light data payloads with intermittent higher usage, then these broadband packages should suit you.
This will allow you to make good quality calls using WhatsApp and Skype, as well as listen to online radio and share photos quickly without having to hang around waiting for your downloads to complete.
If you're a family that watches multiple videos simultaneously or have children who like to game online, you'll probably be better off getting a fast fibre package.
Alternatively, if you work from home a lot and need to interact with colleagues in other locations, sending them large files or need reliable Skype/WhatsApp calling, you should look for a good fibre package that has a fast upload speed.
Most of these packages will also support upload speeds of around 8-10 Mb/s which means you can send data quickly as well as receive it.
Whether you download films regularly, need to send large files quickly, are into gaming or need to work from home - then these packages are ideal for you.
With these faster download speeds, you also will be getting substantially faster upload speeds which lead to a better online experience.
