Despite the Government encouraging workers to get back to the office, many continue to work from home, either full-time or part-time.

It may now mean households are on the hunt for faster and more reliable internet deal, with an increased strain on their service. 

Holly Niblett, head of digital at Compare the Market, said: ‘We have seen a huge increase in the number of people opting for superfast broadband as working from home has become the new norm for millions of workers. 

‘Superfast broadband has evolved from a luxury to a necessary utility for many households across the country, and as a result it should be accessible to the average household.’
