Home Worker Business Broadband
Just because your essential key workers are working from home, it doesn’t mean that they can’t have the best connection possible to enable them to work efficiantly.
Unlike consumer home broadband, business home broadband if more reliable, comes with business level support fix times and a low latency guarantee.
Why is it important for your Key Workers to have Home Worker Business Broadband ?
As businesses adapt to a more modern, flexible way of working, we’ve seen an influx in home and hybrid working. However, updates to Home Broadband need to be made to manage these changes.
One2Call now offer Business Broadband for the Home Worker that has been developed to offer the home worker everything needed to have a hassle-free day when it comes to their internet connection and also gives businesses more control over the speed and reliability of their key workers’ connections.
Having more control over your home workers’ connections allows the business to benefit as the uncertainty of consumer broadband when it comes the unreliability of the speed and bandwidth can impact the level and amount of work produced by your employees of a daily basis. In addition to this, fix times for consumer broadband could be 2-3 days which is unmanageable in a working environment where a loss in internet connection for key workers could cost your business money, therefore using business broadband for home worker packages could improve the efficacy all round.

- Low Latency Guarantee

Static IP Address
An IP address is the numerical address of your computer(s) on your network, but can also be a numerical address of your home or businesses connection to the internet as a whole, with two different types including static (will always stay the same) and non-static (can alter over time based on your ISP requirements).
The majority of consumer broadband packages offer non-static IP address; meaning the IP address of your home could change frequently.
A static IP address means the address doesn’t change, useful for running a website or web application from home or remote access and much more.

Why do you need Home Worker Business Boardband?
Do I/my employees need Home Worker Broadband?
Choosing the right Broadband service for you and you business depends on a wide veriety of factors, similarly when considering your remote workers you must ensire that the service that they are getting is suitable to your businesses needs.
One of the primary things to consider from a Business perspective is that Consumer Home Broadband, that you would normally get for your home, does not offer the same reliability or level of service than a Home Worker Broadband service.
For many businesses and employees, depending on the service that is available, Consumer Home Broadband may be more than adiquate, in many cases offering fast speeds throughout the working day. However, depending on the location and even the home environment, Consumer Home Broadband could offer an unreliable service and connection for your key workers.
Home Worker Business Boardband is designed with your key workers who need a fast, consistant and reliable connection at all times with Business Level Service Agreements. As opposed to Consumer Home Broadband which could have SLA Fix Times starting at 24-48 Hours, our Home Worker Broadband can offer as low as a 7 Hour Fix Time for those who require it.
Tips for Working at Home Effectively
Get a Good & Reliable Connection
A good working day is dependent on the reliability of your broadband, so build it from the bottom up.
Whilst for many, conumer home broadband may be more than suitable, we know that many businesses have key employees that require the best and most reliable connection possible at all times. Unfortunatly comsumer home broadband can; be unreliable, sufffer from bandwidth limitations during peak times and have very long SLA fix times (24-48 hours as a Standard).
Home Worker Business Broandband overcomes these challanges by providing a fast and reliable connaction with the option to add 7 hours SLA Fix Times.
Set Up your Work Space
Set up a dedicated area or ‘work zone’ like you would in the office, however at your home. By working from bed/bedroom or from the sofa/livingroom you mix areas of comfort and relax with an area of work, this can mix the natural signals in your mind.
1: This can lead to a lack of focus thoughout the working day, as you are in a space that would associate with relaxing.
2: In your non-work hours, you may feel that you are still at work as you are still in those same spaces.
A dedicated space doesn’t have to be a separate room, it just has to be away from an area you relax in or have your downtime in. This could be an alternative chair, a dining room table, an outdoor area (weather permitting), or a kitchen worktop.
Keep Work Hours
Not coming into the office may persuade you to have another hour in bed and make up the time at the end of the day. However, keeping a schedule to your day ensures that you can clearly distinct between your working hours and your down time. This reduces the risk of mental fatigue by working late into the evening.
Treat it like a Work Day
Treat working from home like any other office work day. Get up, get dressed, be productive.
We have all been tempted to work in your PJ’s and Dressing Gown, but don’t. Get up and get dressed for work like any other working day.
This will help you mentally seperate your working hours from your personal time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I get WiFi Included?
WiFi and Broadband are two separate things. Broadband is your connection delivered via fibre or copper cables to your business. Whereas Wi-Fi is technology that allows you to connect your wireless devices to the internet.
When your broadband is connected to your property a Router will allow the data to be used to connect devices to the internet. Some Routers (especially consumer Routers) will allow you to connect to the internet over Wi-Fi built in to the routers. However, in many cases, this built in WiFi may not be have a suitable range, capacity or speed to be suitable to most businesses. In this case most businesses will have separate wireless infrastructure to allow for a wide range of devices to connect to the internet over a large business footprint.
At One2Call we can also work with your business to asses your Wireless/Networking requirements, and we can recommend (and even install, manage and maintain) a solution to suit your business needs.
