As a business, how do we address our employees’ inadequate home connection? And whose responsibility is its provision?

When you consider that a Gartner survey revealed that over two-thirds (74%) of companies plan to permanently shift employees to remote work after the Covid-19 crisis ends and that by 2025, an estimated 70% of the workforce will be working remotely at least five days a month., it’s clear that to sustain a successful remote working model while maintaining office level productivity, the question of acceptable home broadband quality must be addressed.
