What are They Even Doing Online?

They don’t own a small business and they aren’t completing tax returns. What’s so important that they need the fastest possible broadband, right here, right now?

Social Media

It’s safe to say that a lot of the time they spend on their smartphone is on Instagram, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Facebook and Twitter. Whether they’re chatting with friends or following their favourite celebrities, they always need to be in the loop. Instagram Live and Periscope allow users to live stream to their fans and followers so they’ll need a stable connection to keep watching.


YouTube and Twitch are just two of the apps your kids might use for entertainment. Once you watch one video, it’s impossible not to watch another. They don’t want to have to deal with the dreaded buffering wheel, so they need fast internet if they’re to keep enjoying videos from the biggest YouTubers and streamers.


When they do feel like doing something productive, your teenagers use their phone for homework. Whether it’s researching topics online or using apps like BBC iPlayer to watch documentaries, they need ultrafast broadband to get their work done before their upcoming deadlines.


There’s nothing worse than typing out the perfect text message and seeing the ‘Failed to Send’ error. At the pivotal moment in a conversation with a friend, they need an internet connection that can cope. You don’t want to be the one in the group chat that can’t see that the day’s plans have changed because you’ve got poor internet.


We aren’t talking about Snake. Mobile games have come a long way in recent years. The biggest game in the world right now, Fortnite, is available on mobile devices. Just as your child is preparing for the match-winning moment, they’re kicked out because there are too many people using the internet in the house. Disaster.


An ultrafast internet connection makes the online shopping experience a whole lot easier. No one wants to wait forever for the next page of clothes to load. They might be buying tickets for their favourite band and have to wait in an online queue. Just as they’re ready to enter their card details, the internet goes and they’ve lost their place.


Spotify and Apple Music are amazing for listening to the hottest new tracks, but only when the internet is working. No one wants to hear the latest Ed Sheeran song stuttering as it tries to download. Ultrafast broadband allows everyone in the house to listen to different tracks without any drop in quality.


Sky Go’s mobile app is perfect for keeping up to date with live sport. As long as you’re a Sky Sports subscriber, you can watch Premier League football, cricket, rugby and tennis. There’s nothing worse than a live match freezing just at the crucial moment. Make sure you have ultrafast internet so they never miss a second of the action.

Keep Them Happy with Ultrafast Internet

Ultrafast internet means they’re always connected and they never have FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). If they’re not able to get online, they’ll be worried that their friends are planning things without them or they’re missing the latest gossip.

It isn’t just the kids that’ll be kept happy, ultrafast broadband means that every single user in the house won’t experience a drop in quality. No matter how many devices you have connected, everyone will still have the same fast connection.

Even if you live in a rural community, we can provide your household with ultrafast broadband. Perfect for keeping the kids happy upstairs while you stream the latest binge-worthy TV shows downstairs.
