10Mbps up/down will be fine so long as you are only using it for video calls. The moment you start adding simultaneous file downloads, email downloads or any other devices (e.g. TV with Netflix) into the mix then things will start to fall apart
This comment is a classic example of how the wrong terms are used to describe the requirements for a service, and why, in general, there is such a poor understanding of how things work.I use Teams and Zoom, and I have a cheap Logitech 720p camera - upload speed required is around 2Mbps - Download speed required depends on how many participants are in the call, but Teams does a pretty good job of scaling the quality depending on available bandwidth - Im pretty sure Zoom / Google meet do similar. I would hazard a guess and say that 20Mbps should be fine for most WFH usecases.
5MB upload should be sufficient. Our clients hardly go over 2 but yea.
Try running a cable from wifi router to your laptop. Should improve quality. But yea very very seldom see people use over 3-5MB upload unless they are moving things to cloud or seeding downloadsI've checked Zoom's data usage when doing video call (2 to 3 users), usage sometimes less than 600 kb, other times between 300 kb and 2MB, few times over 3MB.
Zoom disconnects about 7% of the time (usage between 600 kb and 2MB), Zoom shows signal color switches from green to orange or red, if I move laptop to another area in home, then signal color green again.
Never have issues browsing internet and downloads are fast. When using speedtest, get between 6 mbps and 26 mbps, average between 10 mbps and 16 mbps.
