Cisco “Broadband Index”

Covid has changed the world of work forever. Our insight agency, Opinion Matters, designed and gathered data from across the world on workers’ current home broadband use and their expectations for the future – with some fascinating results.


Broadband connectivity is much more than just the ability to access the Internet. It powers an individual’s access to basic needs, including healthcare and education, as well as empowers them to participate in the global economy.

Opinion Matters polled 13 questions to 60,000 workers across 30 countries, including the UK, US, India, China and Saudi Arabia to ascertain their views. The sample included respondents based in every region of each market, who either work full-time remotely; full-time in an office; hybrid or between home and the office.
