Working and Learning from Home

As we all approach the end of July, many of us have had to adapt to these extraordinary times by working from home and learning from home. As the future of many workplaces remains uncertain, we would like to remind you that Rapid Broadband is working hard to ensure that when you’re working at home, your internet connection is the least of your worries.

In order to work from home you need to ensure that your bandwidth is sufficient to utilise online video conferencing applications e.g. Zoom and sending important documents over email.

The Irish Government have just announced that schools and universities should implement some element of online learning in the upcoming academic year. The Home Extra package is also the recommended package for studying and learning from home using virtual learning environments (VLEs).

We would recommend our Rapid MaxWave Home Extra package for working and learning from home. This package gives you a download speed of up to 18Mb and an upload speed of 4Mb.

The fast download and upload speeds are ideal for online video-conferencing with applications like Zoom recommending a bandwidth of 1.5Mbps and allows for HD video streaming for students watching revision videos on YouTube.
