Available broadband speeds in the UK vary greatly from 8Mbps up to 1000Mbps, depending on where you live, your provider, and if you have access to cable or fibre broadband. How much data (Megabits, Mb) that can be transferred to your device per second will affect how fast you can upload and download things from the internet. For example, slower broadband speeds of 8Mbps will take much longer to download a file from the internet, or can cause sound and image lags in video calls.
When signing up for a broadband package, your provider will usually tell you the speed you can expect in your area, and may also tell you a minimum speed guarantee. You can usually find this on your broadband bill. If not, you can contact your provider to find this out.
By running a speed test at your business or home, you can find out what broadband speed you are actually getting, and if it could be a hindrance to your working.
