Working From Home - The New American Workplace

According to Forbes in February, 2013, one in five Americans worked from home. And, the numbers are rising. Some are self-employed entrepreneurs. Some offer customer service or billing for major corporations. Others telecommute as consultants. The freelance workforce is growing faster than any other work from home situation. According to Women in Business, the freelance workforce increased 400 percent from 2005 to 2014! As a whole, the at-home workforce is expected to grow over 65% in the future.

The number one driving force behind all this? Internet, of course. The Internet is available 24/7 so the office is always open. Internet providers are many and varied, offering a variety of Internet access. HughesNet Satellite Internet offers the best technology in the business and delivers top speeds for at-home workers - no matter where they live!

Secondly, the savings for companies is huge. Freelancers reduce the cost of hiring a full or part time employee. The company saves in overhead costs and by not having to provide benefits. Liability for on-site accidents is greatly reduced.

And there are other factors: Employees working from home tend to be more productive and have lower absenteeism. They have more control and do not waste time and energy driving to and from the work site. Not to mention the environmental impact of less automobile emissions, spills, etc. Home based workers tend to work even when feeling ill and can return to work faster after an illness or surgery. Employee satisfaction tends to be higher with at-home workers compared to those tied to the office workspace.

Off-site workers do not have to shut down when power goes out at the main facility during a weather event. The office work can continue without missing a beat with these at-home employees. They don’t have to worry about commuting through wind, ice, or snow.

Flexible hours are definitely a plus when working from home, especially for offices in different time zones. Many employees live in rural areas where job opportunities equal a long commute, which takes time away from family. HughesNet Gen4 Satellite Internet provides the perfect work at home opportunity in any time zone, anywhere you live.

As long as you have a strong, reliable Internet signal, you can work from home, anywhere! Call HughesNet today to have our qualified engineers help you choose the perfect plan to fit your work and your lifestyle!

Living With Whatever Life Throws at You - An Express Repair Story

Mike was having trouble with his HughesNet Internet connection.

He really needed to access some work files and was having problems.

The data was either loading very slowly, or not at all.

He had already gone through the helpful information online:

  • He checked the Transmit light on the modem (second from top). t was blinking infrequently, meaning it was calibrating transmission to the satellite. Hmm
  • He then checked the Receiving light (just below Transmit light). It was not blinking, meaning he was not receiving transmission.
  • He knew he was not part of a VPN network which slows speeds.
  • No one else was using the network at the same time as Mike.
  • He was certain he was not over his data allowance, the Smart Meter told him that.

Following the online help guide, he decided to look outside. There had not been severe weather lately or he would have assumed weather interference was the problem.

To Mike’s surprise he noticed a large branch had fallen from the tree just over his home and was on top of his HughesNet Gen4 receiver dish! Thank goodness Mike had signed up for Express Repair with HughesNet!

Once the tree removal service had removed the limb, the Express Repair technician was able to fix the problem and Mike was downloading his work files within 24 hours of his call to Express Repair.
