  • Transcript

    I'm a business and career coach, so working with people all over the world. It's really important that I have fast and reliable, Full Fibre broadband. I literally can't do what I do and be as productive as I need to be if I've got a slow internet connection.

    If the internet is not stable and reliable, it can be a huge problem. Working from home really does give you much more work life balance. So to be able to be there as a mum, to be able to pick her up from school. Success is not just about business success, it's about overall life success. So, connectivity is key.

“I’m not a technical person at all so I was a little bit nervous trying to deal with getting the Full Fibre connected…But the engineer was really helpful…I was really impressed with them being able to deal with someone who was probably a bit of a technophobe!”
