How to keep your Internet connection stable during lockdown

A media watchdog in the UK has provided advice on how to optimise your Internet connection while working from home during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Several major companies that rely on the Internet to deliver their services - including Microsoft, Facebook, and Netflix - have taken measures to ensure that they meet the increased demand as more people work remotely and spend additional time on the Internet.

A lot of companies are not in a good position to handle the number of users currently working from home.
Cisco's Webex has been randomly falling over from the load and Microsoft dont have enough engineers to quickly handle support tickets raised around Skype for Business.
VPN's are not handling the number of users or throughput required either.

It's been replaced by teams anyway.

Agreed.
I understand security risk with split routing but which a lot more companies would allow this.
