Getting Better Internet for Telecommuting Work

Author: admin  //  Category: Uncategorized

Our old Internet service was getting slower and slower. They were adding more and more customers, but they were not improving their infrastructure at the same rate. More people on the system just made it get slower and slower for customers. I noticed it because I would telecommute. If you use your home Internet service for any work related projects, you will notice when it starts to slow down and lag. Video conferencing was a big problem. Even when the download speeds were great, the upload speeds were severely throttled back. I figured that switching to ATT, a big provider company, would improve things.

There are all kinds of Internet service providers (ISPs) out there. Some of them are not giant companies backed by a lot of employees who are constantly improving its framework. Some companies actually use old technologies in place and lease its use from others. Did you know that there are still some dial-up Internet options that are still in existence? They would be practically useless even at 54kb speeds. You want Internet measured in the megabit speeds now. Some services offer up to 100 mbps. That is blazingly fast. However, if you do any sort of telecommuting, you want fast upload speeds too. It was a real pain not being able to have an upload feed of HD video from my web cam for video teleconferencing. Now we have the speed with ATT that supports it.

I am able to teach the remote classes to employees using a video teleconferencing platform my company uses. I can see and hear students in real time, and they can see and hear me. Plus, all of my movements using the whiteboard and showing examples is instantaneous. I no longer have any Internet speed issues when I am working for my office at home.
