More than 1000 participants?Kahoot allows up to 4000 participants in a single game, but this will likely require a fiber optic internet service to handle the anticipated traffic. To identify the recommended bandwidth for a game with more than 1000 participants, multiply your total number of participants by 0.045. For example, 4000 players x 0.045 = 180 Mbps up & down.
Note that routers sometimes have limits on the max number of devices they’ll handle. We generally recommend asking participants to use their cell data if they have a good signal, leaving wi-fi for those with poor signal. Each answer submitted is roughly 1Kb of data. Someone with a 1Gb data plan could send over a million answers before reaching 1Gb.
It's also important that you host such a game on a laptop or desktop with moderate hardware (like an i5 processor and 8GB RAM). Games are reliant on the hosting device to process responses from players. On a rare occasion, issues in gameplay can be attributed to the hosting device's hardware.
