If you’re working from home, you’re not alone. You’re connected with people and information in immediate and innovative ways.

Whether you’ve worked this way for years – or it’s new for you – know your options. Use these tips and recommendations to help you plan, prepare and innovate your home HQ.

COMMUNICATE
Be Heard and Don’t Miss a Word
Connecting with key people and critical information is vital to your career success. That’s true no matter where you work. But, when you work from home, reliable calling options are crucial.
mobile
Make mobile work for you.
A smartphone can bring your work to life no matter where you work. If it’s your go-to for work calls, be sure your wireless plan fits your coverage and data needs and your budget. Learn more about AT&T wireless plans here.

How old is your smartphone? If it’s more than a generation old, consider a newer one. It can help you make the most of your wireless carrier’s network – and the latest calling features and apps. If you’re an AT&T customer check to see if you’re eligible for an upgrade – or shop offers and deals on the latest phones.

Need a stronger signal?
Is your wireless signal at home reliable? If not, you may be able to activate Wi-Fi calling on your smartphone. This allows you to use your home internet connection for calls instead of your wireless carrier’s cell towers.

Sometimes you need a Plan B.
The unexpected has a way of popping up and interrupting your workflow. Damaged or uncharged smartphones, or weather-related service interruptions can create problems. If more than one happens at once, you can kiss your productivity goodbye. You can avoid this with a landline. It’s a solid alternative.

STAY PRODUCTIVE
Stay Connected
Working from home is almost impossible without a solid internet connection. Staying productive means thinking about the speed, bandwidth and reliability of your internet service – and beyond it. So, pay attention to the equipment and number of devices you’re using. Look for weak spots. And, add what you need to strengthen your signal and setup.
It starts with fast, reliable broadband.
To maximize productivity, make sure the speed and bandwidth of your internet connection fits how you use it. If you transfer large files, stream video or have several devices connected at once, for example, you’ll need a faster speed.
Wi-Fi Router Placement Matters
Where you place your Wi-Fi router impacts its signal strength and performance. If you can, place it in a central location in your home. Keep it upright and off the floor. Avoid keeping it in a cabinet or closet. And, keep it away from signal-emitting devices, like microwaves, baby monitors and cordless phones.
Amplify your Wi-Fi signal.
Even with the best internet speed and perfect equipment location, you can still face Wi-Fi challenges at home. Homes spread over large areas – or those with complex layouts – can experience a poor signal or dead spots. The same can happen if you use several connected devices at once.

If this is the case for you, consider adding a Wi-Fi extender if you’re an AT&T customer (requires an eligible AT&T Internet plan and compatible gateway), or replace your current router with a mesh network if you’re not. Either can amplify your signal and help solve these issues for you.

Need a backup Wi-Fi option?
Depending on your wireless plan, you may be able to activate a hotspot on your phone to stay online at home (If you’re an AT&T customer, check here for details). If you do, be sure you understand how it will impact your wireless data options and budget – especially if you’ll rely on it regularly.
