Enough bandwidth for everyone in your home – and Wi-Fi that can handle it all.
Whether you’re teaching remotely, researching from your living room, or sending your homework to the cloud, distance learning is easier when you don’t have to worry about slowdowns, interruptions or having to kick someone off the internet.
You can set up parental controls to keep your kids safe while they’re learning from home.
But keeping up good habits online is good practice for your whole family, school days or weekends. Family Link has a variety of resources, including screen time limits, activity monitoring applications, and tools that can help you and your family stay on task while online.
Your internet makes a difference for online learning, so it’s important to make sure you’ve got fast downloads and uploads. Some “fast” internet plans have fast downloads – but slower uploads. To help give everyone the bandwidth they need, make sure you look at both speeds when picking a plan.
