Working from home (WFH) has become the new normal for many of us across the UK since COVID-19 tore through our workplaces. In 2020 at the height of the pandemic, 8.4 million of us worked from home according to the ONS. Since then, the world of work has changed, with businesses and employees finding flexi-working so beneficial, that 85% of remote workers want to continue a hybrid approach to both home and office working.

So, what are the benefits of working from home, and how can toob help you boss your workday and calm the stresses that come with remote working…

the speed you need

The biggest necessity for home working, is an internet connection. Without this, home working just isn’t viable. If your connection is regular FTTC (fibre-to-the-cabinet), your broadband will be delivered to you via fibre to the green box in your street and then slowed down as it travels through old copper cabling to your home. This is where toob fills the gap, as we keep our full-fibre going, directly to your property. With the UK’s speeds averaging 37.82 Mbps last year, our full-fibre with 900 Mbps download and upload is a no-brainer to have. Don’t share your connection in the cable box with the rest of your road, toob can give you a dedicated line to supercharge your workday.


With your internet working the right way for you, you’re more likely to get through your workload quicker. But it’s not just our speeds that will ensure you whizz through the day, but our reliability too. We build and own our own network, which means we’re not reliant on other providers lines. This gives us better control to keep it working for you. toob customer Ed says:

“the one thing that I am most impressed with, is the reliability you get from toob. my previous broadband provider was cutting out at least once a month which was very frustrating”

strong connection

Video conferencing saw a massive 535% rise in daily traffic last year, and now 76% of employees are using video conferencing for remote work. With these big stats, it’s no wonder that a crystal-clear connection is a must-have and freezing in calls is no longer acceptable. toob can put a stop to dropping out of calls to ensure you join the meeting and stay in the meeting. Whether you’re freelance, independent, self-employed, full-time or part-time, our strong, full-fibre connection ensures you can call, present, host and be present when you need to be. The only thing we can’t help with, is your colleagues shouting “you’re on mute” – that’s all on you!

go green

The benefits of working from home include sustainability through less waste. We save on plastic and paper whilst WFH, as well as greenhouse gas emissions due to the reduction in daily commutes. toob can further reduce your carbon footprint, as full-fibre networks like ours create 88% less greenhouse gas per 1GB compared to other broadband technologies. With the world finally waking up to the global environmental crisis, we all need to do our bit to ensure we’re as green as possible.

save time and money

You could be paying as much as £60-70 per month to attain high internet speeds. You’ll want the best broadband to optimise working from home, but are these prices necessary? We believe that a fast internet connection shouldn’t be ‘top-end’ and be readily available to anyone, regardless of wealth. This is why we charge significantly less than our competitors. At just £25 per month (per 18 month contract) for 900 Mbps, you’ll find us the best on the market. And with no in contract price rises guaranteed, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that you’ll be earning money at work, not spending it out on crazy broadband prices!

So if you’re wondering “how can I work from home online?” when your broadband is giving you nightmares, choose toob to help enhance your work/life balance and turn your ‘day job’ in to a happy, home-based role. Get back to enjoying work!
