We are looking to move house, from an urban area to a house that is in a semi-rural area. As we are doing research we are trying to work out what the broadband speeds are going to be like there. Information from the major providers seems to suggest we’d get 20-36mbps download with a minimum of 17mbps and 5-7mbps upload speeds. What we don’t know is if this is going to be enough. Currently we get 70-90mbps download and 9-10mbps upload speeds.
Usage wise both my husband and I work from home, requiring video calling. We also often have music/TV streaming on multiple devices at the same time as the video calls. Would we have issues at the predicted speeds? If we can’t get decent broadband it will be a deal breaker on an otherwise amazing property so need to make sure we are making the right decision,
