Working From Home Digital Literacy
WFH or Working From Home requires knowledge of internet speeds and the factors that contribute to your online experiences. Running a speed test helps to understand:
- How long will it take to upload and download files?
- Videos streaming experience?
- Video conference experience?
- Video pixelation – is the video optimized to present you and your network as clear as possible?
- Audio without latency ?
- No conference dropouts or re-connects?
- Responsive smartphone, laptop, tablet, or game console use with your home WiFi?
- IoT – Internet of Things, that work?
Consider running an internet speed test to understand the variables throughout the day including:
- Time of day
- Number of users in household online
- Video demands
- Weather – for Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) or satellites
The WNC Broadband project is advocating on your behalf for future-proof solutions that provide internet connectivity and digital literacy for all.
