On Saturday 10th October, the England football team are playing their penultimate qualifier in the Ukraine. It will be the first time in recent history that an England qualifying match hasn't been shown live on a 'normal' TV channel. This event and the potential number of people streaming this are going to put pressure across the UK broadband networks. This could cause slower than expected speeds for everybody using the internet, including our customers. If you want to watch you can see the game via the official stream here. Before streaming this there are a few things you need to know prior to kick-off:
The match will be broadcast in 2 different quality streams, make sure you pick the most appropriate for your connection. The lower quality stream will need around 550kbps whilst the higher one will need over 800kbps.
You can check the speed of your connection using our speedtest here to see which stream you should choose.
We'd advise you to close other programs on your computer and try to limit the amount of other web activities going on at the same time.
