Internet speeds


In order to use Slido at your event, a stable internet connection is required.

  • Generally, a Slido participant needs 5MB of data a day, while the admin needs around 15MB of data a day
  • If you’re holding an in-person event, we recommend a speed of 5 to 10 mbits/s per 100 participants
  • At large venues, it's a good practice to set up multiple access points to make sure people are connected at all times

Connecting up Slido devices & backups


Always have a backup plan to make sure you'll stay connected even if your Wi-Fi breaks.

  • We recommend a LAN cable plugged into the presenter laptop to ensure a stable and uninterrupted connection
  • Stable connection for devices that you'll use to administer Slido on the day
  • Carry a smartphone with an active 3G or LTE data plan to quickly set up a Wi-Fi hotspot as a backup

Testing before showtime


We recommend a couple of simple checks before the show starts.

  • Send a few questions and votes to Slido to test if the experience is fast and everything runs smoothly
  • Continuously check if all Slido devices are connected to the network
