Frequently asked questions

What’s the best broadband for a large family?

That depends how large your family is. But as a rule of thumb, we'd say if you're in a house of three-four people, you'll need a connection of 35Mbps or above. In a house of five or more people, we'd recommend you get a package with a speed of 67Mbps.

To get those sort of speeds, you'll need a fibre optic broadband package. These are available from the likes of BT, Plusnet, EE, Sky, TalkTalk, Vodafone. And in better connected areas, Virgin Media.

The reason large families need faster connections is that they tend to be crammed full of computers, smartphones, tablets, games consoles, and smart TVs, with lots of family members trying to use them simultaneously. The more internet-enabled gadgets in a home, the faster the connection you'll require.

Do families need fibre optic broadband?

Whether or not you need fibre optic broadband depends on how much you use the internet, how large your household is and how many devices are being used at once.

Fibre optic broadband will give you…

  • Faster speeds
  • More bandwidth, so you can get loads of devices online at once
  • Lower latency (lag), meaning better Skype calls and more responsive online gaming

Do family homes require broadband with unlimited downloads?

Broadband with unlimited downloads is essential for large households. Luckily, nearly every broadband provider offers unlimited packages, including BT, Sky, TalkTalk, and Virgin Media. You won’t be short on choice.

Keep an eye out for ‘truly unlimited’ packages too - this means there’s no web traffic management that can slow down your connection at peak times.
