My work use Spark Fiber and I work a lot from home. If I move to 2D Fiber Ultimate at home would there be much of a latency increase connecting between the two ISPs? I need to review CCTV footage remotely so would like the fastest possible connection. I'm located in Hamilton.

If you want the lowest latency, your only option is to use spark connection at home too.

In real life though, if it's just reviewing CCTV footage a few more ms of latency isnt going to matter.

You shouldn't have any issues with using 2degrees at home, and Spark at work. Reviewing CCTV footage is not latency sensitive.
