The trend of work place is shifting slowly to home office. Most of us already have a office room in our house. Either you work for a company or you are doing your own business. Having a home office can help you to concentrate in work. There are a lot problems working at home. We must depend on Internet connection for work at home businesses. Internet and phone is the gateway for our online businesses. I’m staying in a congested town with over 2 million people staying on a small island. My home town is in Taiping, Perak where it is known as retired people’s town. I’m using broadband connection of 1Mb for both addresses. During peak hours, I only can get 10 – 40 Kb/s in Penang (Urban area). Whereas, in my hometown, the same connection brings me 100 – 150 Kb/s during peak hours. Obviously, the connection is 3 to 4 times higher than urban area. I checked with the service provider (Streamyx) about this. The informed me that there is a bandwidth limit for all areas. The usage and dependence of Internet in urban area is higher, that is why I get such low rate. I’m seriously considering moving to a rural area where there are no blocks of apartments or stretch of terrace houses. I’m seriously thinking about renting a “Kampung House” (Village house) just to try the connection speed. Doing full time home business, we need to have high speed Internet connection. The more speed you have, the better opportunity you can get. I don’t waste my bandwidth downloading movies or video files. To bring our home business to next level, we need faster connection. Getting a faster connection in urban area can be very costly and still we can’t enjoy the full benefit because of congested usage. How about your area? Are you planning to move too?
