Working from home: Is your broadband up to speed?

Say goodbye to slow downloads and glitchy Zoom calls – here's how to get the fastest (and most reliable) broadband at home.

Remember when you were a child and you’d be lost in those precious moments of playtime? Whether it was settling in front of the telly to watch Saturday morning cartoons, racing bikes around the neighbourhood or popping your favourite CD into the player and belting out tunes. (Was anyone else’s bedroom walls covered in Westlife posters?)

Then somewhere along the line, playtime was replaced with work time, parent time or the dreaded tidy time. As adults, we deserve to let go and get lost in our imaginations too. I think that’s why we’ve seen such a surge in streaming services. We’re looking for an easy escape to unwind from long days and daily stresses, especially since so many of us are working from home.

When your place of rest doubles as your place of work, it’s hard to draw that line in the sand. And what may be a taxing workday can easily seep into our minds as we try to kick back and relax in that same space.

Virgin Media is on a mission to help us regain some fun in our lives. The key, of course, is a fast-performing broadband that serves both our worlds, allowing for streamlined business days, minus the annoying glitchy Zoom calls and Jurassic loading speeds, and evenings of entertainment that require as little brain power as possible.

So you can flick on your favourite shows, play your favourite games, or dance along to nostalgic tunes and immerse yourself in playtime once again.

So, how do you know your internet is up to scratch? You turn to the experts. Virgin Media offers ultrafast broadband with 99.9 per cent reliability, guaranteeing they will be there when you need them most. All you have to do is pick the right plan for your household.

When choosing the best broadband for your needs, it’s important to consider what you’ll be using it for. Virgin Media have three speeds on offer – 500Mb, which is ideal for a busy household and supports browsing, video calls and streaming your favourite films; 1Gb,  designed for remote working and gaming with super fast download speeds and buffer-free video calls; and 2Gb full-fibre broadband, with lightning fast speeds and the very best digital connectivity across Ireland.

Designed with busy homes in mind, Virgin Media allows you to stream your favourite shows from any device. In fact, with Virgin TV you can enjoy extraordinary TV, from multiple platforms, subscriptions and providers, without having to jump between them. So, if you’re working from home, you can join a stress-free Zoom call, while the kids watch their favourite shows right where they left off – all at the same time. Plus, Virgin offers speedy delivery options so, whether you’re moving house or want to upgrade your broadband, the switch is as smooth as possible.
