Find out how prepared you really are for Christmas in this guide to which gadgets need better broadband this Christmas.


Christmas is almost upon us, your presents are wrapped under the tree and your house is filled to the brim with Christmas decorations, but what would happen if your current broadband speed doesn’t support the tech gifts you bought this season?


Here are five gadgets that may be under your tree this year which need a better broadband connection.


Some may even surprise you!


1. Apple iPad


The new 10.2” iPad with retina display, an ultra-wide camera, A13 bionic chip and all-day battery life is a fantastic gift for Christmas.


Built in Wi-Fi makes it easier than ever to connect to your home network and shop, play, connect and learn.


2. Oculus Quest 2


Dive into virtual reality with Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 through a light headset that takes you into a very convincing alternate reality.


Play games and chat with friends around the world, connecting through a Facebook account and a strong broadband connection.


3. Google Nest Hub


The Google Nest Hub allows you to make the most of your moments at home.


Connect to a powerful broadband connection and sync with your voice to get news, make a shopping list, create reminders, and even control smart devices in your home.


4. Apple iPhone 13


Apple’s latest release contains a lightning-fast chip, dual camera system, flat edge design and water-resistant material.


The Apple iPhone 13 contains a bigger, longer lasting battery with the ability to browse, game, connect and watch all day long, providing you have a stable broadband connection.


5. Ikea Symfonisk WIFI speaker


Ikea’s partnership with Wi-Fi speaker makers Sonos brought us a shelf, lamp and now a picture frame that doubles up as a speaker.


The Symfonisk connects wirelessly to your internet connection hiding behind a photo to stream music.

The right broadband connection can be the difference between seamlessly chatting, gaming, listening and learning all under one roof, compared to buffering, frustrating loading screens and broken audio.


Make sure you are prepared this Christmas by investing in a broadband connection you really need, rather than sticking with the connection you have.


As the months go by, more and more smart devices are purchased, all needing a stronger and more reliable internet connection.


Don’t let your provider let you down this Christmas, switch today and be prepared for the future.
