Enhancing Remote Working with Trogon Broadband Boost
How do you work effectively at home when your broadband sucks?
Before 2020 people working in remote, or simply poorly served, locations oftent had to make do with residential broadband services that were sub-optimal. They may have been able to access low band-width services such as email and internet banking but high band-width services such as video-streaming or video-conferencing would not work. This meant for many people effective home working would be impossible.
Before 2020 people in that situation had the option of travelling into their office to benefit from the fast internet speeds needed for enterprise activities. They had a choice.
However, in 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic changed all of that. Government advice in the UK was to stay home and work from home if possible.
Huge numbers of office-based companies changed to home-based overnight. For people with good internet connectivity this transition was smooth. However, for those employees who weren’t able to get a suitable broadband connection for their type of business this was a problem. Often it was compouned by a number of people working from the same location trying to share the same limited broadband resources.
This created a major challenge for both employers and employees. Without an adequate broadband service the employee couldn’t be productiove and the employer would see further reduced productivity.
Long Lead times for replacement services
The obvious solution would be to upgrade the residential broadband service, but in many cases for rural residents there are limietd services and choice of vendors.
The other challenge facing the major internet service providers (ISPs) was that service installation required access to the home.
The typical lead time for installing a business broadband service is twelve weeks, which represents a huge amout of lost productivity. So what was the solution?
