How to get the best internet for your home
Shopping for an internet plan can feel daunting, especially if you don’t know the terminology and are presented with overwhelming choices – from different types of internet, speeds, devices and costs. In this article, we’ll break it all down to help you make the best choice.
Where to start
1. How are you going to use the internet?
We all have different uses of the internet, like running an online business, gaming, streaming to casual web browsing.
For a single household user, a 5 - 10Mbps line may be sufficient to send the odd email here and there or browse the feeds on social media. In contrast, a household with multiple users can splash out with a 100 - 200Mbps line for connecting to the cloud, gaming and streaming in 4K.
Use our Fibre speed wizard, a guide with examples and estimations to help you establish which line speed to get.
2. Check availability in your area.
Simply go to the Fast WiFi page, enter the address in the search bar and follow the prompts.
Pure Fibre or Pure LTE will pop up if they are available in the area. Some areas will have both options, which will be a bonus, as you get more choice and flexibility.
We do recommend that you go for Fibre should you have both options. It is undeniably the best choice as it's faster, with no limits, while Pure LTE serves as a viable alternative to Fibre.
