How much network bandwidth will I need to use campus resources from home?
First, test your home network connection speeds. CAEN recommends using the U-M Speedtest website.
Bandwidth requirements will differ depending on the campus service you are using, and the range of capabilities it offers. Below you will find a table of minimum recommended connection speeds for some common U-M services used at the College of Engineering. Where available, click the speed listed in the table for further information on how network requirements may vary:

|U-M Zoom||800 Kbps/1 Mbps (up/down)|
