Delivering Reliable At-Home 4G LTE Connectivity That IT Can Manage
The popularity of remote working reached an all time high during the COVID-19 pandemic, with many businesses being forced to accomodate work from home (WFH) for their employees in order to continue functioning. With benefits for both the company themselves and the employees too, this new way of working proved a great success with 82% of organizations planning to continue WFH at least part time.
Just as you would inside an office setting, it is vital that employees working from home have access to high-performing equipment to work to their full potential. Whilst most employers will supply employees with computers, monitors, laptops and phones, they often don’t consider the internet access. Whilst it is safe to assume that the employee will have broadband at home, it’s important to remember that this bandwidth will be shared with partners, family or roommates, all of whom will be fighting for the internet access too.
Access to high-performance connection is vital for success remote working and can easily be achieved with a branch router!
