Use the best internet connection you can

Wired connections (ethernet) are better than wireless (wifi or cellular) connections. Wifi connections are better than cellular (4G/5G/LTE) connections.

Close other applications

Virtual meetings require significant memory and processing power. Closing unneeded applications will improve your connection (e.g., VPN, Excel, Word, Outlook, other browser tabs).

Avoid high-bandwidth activities on your network

Prior to your virtual meeting, stop or pause activities that require significant amounts of bandwidth on all devices that connect to your network (i.e., cell phones, tablets, TVs, other computers). High-bandwidth activities include:

  • Large downloads/uploads
  • Streaming video (e.g., Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, etc.)
  • Cloud backups/synchronizations (e.g., iCloud, Carbonite, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc.)
