    Hi @fer

    Depends on the type of usage, normally 120 mbps is sufficient to watch 4 video 4K at the same time

    However, if you have an XBOX or Playstation will be great to have 400Mbps, for couple of times a month, the games update are huge, and you can download 3 times faster :D

    But a short answer, 120 Mbps is more than enough on my humble opinion

    We use only two at the same time, so it's ok 120. And for team/zoom meetings?
