1st December 2021

We got to thinking about what we do every year at Christmas-time, our annual habits and our festive traditions. And, we were surprised with just how much of it we use the internet for! In this modern era, we’ve moved on from carolling in the neighbourhood and burning the yule log. Instead, we’re streaming Christmas movies, tracking Santa on Christmas eve and video-calling family, where nan has inevitably got the phone on the wonk.

With toob‘s strong full-fibre broadband, we make sure you can enjoy those traditions that make Christmas extra special. Check out all the ways that you can bring Christmas together with toob in our festive blog that celebrates all the things we do over the holiday period.

12 reasons to feast on full-fibre this Christmas

watch festive films

we love our Christmas movies so much that around half of Netflix's subscribers watched at least one holiday film in 2019!

If you are a festive film buff, download your favourites in seconds, not minutes with toob - less time than it takes to make a hot chocolate.

connect your new devices

Merry Tech-mas! Last year, a massive 83% of the UK was set to gift connected gadgets!

In this day and age, we love nothing more than fiddling with our new gadgets with a tub of Celebrations Christmas afternoon (other brands available!)

With our 900 Mbps, there's no issue with bandwidth, so the whole family can get connected and enjoy their new gifts

connect with family

It's important to so many of us, especially in the current climate, to connect with our loved ones. The Christmas period only strengthens this need to connect with friends and family that we can't be near.

You'll find our connection is strong, stable and reliable, so you can see your beloved in HD over a crystal clear connection.

discover what's on

A Christmas must, is going along to the local Christmas Light Switch On event. Those chilly winter evenings are magical.

If you're wanting to find out what events, workshops, switch ons, grottos and more are available, searching online is your best bet.

Let toob take off the stress of surfing the net, so you can ski the slopes of the internet with ease.

DIY your decs

So many of us are 'pinning' our favourite DIY gift ideas, streaming wrapping techniques on Facebook and YouTubing festive decoration how to's. It's a great way of saving the pennies and getting creative.

With toob, you can be streaming into the early hours with our connection that doesn't bottleneck at a cool £25 per month

bake your festive favourites

Christmas is very much about food and feasting! You can cook up a storm with ease, by searching up your favourite recipes or re-watching Mary Berry's best bits online.

Whatever it is you fancy... a gingerbread house, the perfect turkey or a seasonal showstopper - toob's got your back!

The washing up is on you though...

watch the best christmas specials

Who doesn't love a Christmas special of their favourite show? 2020 saw huge viewing figures of:

The Queen's Speech: 8.2m
Call The Midwife: 5.4m
Blankety Blank: 5.3m
Strictly Christmas: 4.9m

It's sometimes tricky to fit them all in when family are in and out. But have no fear - you can catch up and stream them all with no buffer or lag with toob.

shop 'til you drop online

Online shopping is huge, especially recently during the pandemic. Last year, online shopping at Christmas-time increased by 56.2%!

Our full-fibre means that you don't have to get back 'out there' if you don't want to.

Surf and shop away with ease with a strong connection that sails you through the virtual checkouts.

upload your seasonal selfies

There's no doubt that our social media profiles will be full of seasonal selfies and festive filters.

You can upload them all in no time with toob's 900 Mbps upload speed.

With full-fibre at the speed of light, you'll upload quicker than it takes Santa to take off!

track Santa!

Check out our favourite websites to track the big man himself...


Kids can even go online and play Christmas games all December long with Google's Santa tracker!

Oh the wonders of modern technology.

join the Christmas party

Ah, a tradition in recent years is the annual office party over video call; a delight of colleagues talking over each other during the Christmas quiz with a mince pie to hand!

With toob's super strong connection and HD quality, you won't drop out of the party. Just one more reminder so you don't miss the festivities...

...You're on mute!

play your new games

Our 3-6 ping rate is seriously low, meaning you can play those new games like you've never played them before.

Say goodbye to lag, stutter and latency and just enjoy.

Whether your gaming on a console, PC, mobile, tab or VR, you'll experience the game at its best with toob!
