Internet requirements ?



In your opinion, what would you say are the average (Upload, Download) speeds that I should have in my office to efficiently work with Power Bi files that are less than 1GB. This means to (download data into PB, upload to publish, and refresh data).


I know that you can use Power Bi even with 5-10 Mbps, but what I am asking is about the OPTIMUM internet speed so you can even work with 0.9 GB files and they will quickly refresh or upload to the workspace in about 5 minutes.


Upload speed : ?

Download speed: ?

Hi Alerxrk,


Min 2MBPS is good to go.

You said 2, are you sure, for a file that is 0.5 GB ?

It sounds like an extremely low internet speed, even to browse the internet.
