    Default Broadband Alternative

    Hi guys

    I have been offered a contract position that I will be remotely working from home. The only issue is I have really bad broadband.... What are the best options for an alternative? I have a 4G mifi unit that I sometimes use with a 20GB data limit. Is this my only option? Or is there other options out there?

    Thanks in advance

    Dial up?

    Move house?

    Rent office space that has broadband?

    None of those options are viable

    What sort of solution are you expecting then?

    Satellite broadband perhaps?

    You were being fussy when you stated renting office space with broadband wasn't an option.

    Don't know where you are in the world by in lots of cities you can rent a desk with broadband access.

    The thing is if you take on a remote contract you have to have broadband that works and it doesn't have to be at your home.
