Telecommuting

Good Afternoon,

This is just a general question. Do any of you telecommute for jobs stateside? If so, what field is it that you work in? Do you currently travel back and forth on a regular basis? Just curious. Thank you.

I'm still doing project management consulting for a company back in the states. I do almost everything remote and have to go back there every couple months, but otherwise, everything is conference calls, skype, IM, etc....

Yes - in finance; travel a couple of times a year.

Redundant capacity is an important consideration.

One of my business clients has Choice, Innovative and Hughesnet.

One would think 2 ISP's iwould be enuf, but there have been times both Choice and Innovative have been down at the same time.

I work on the internet and "access" was a major concern before I moved down.
Turned out it wasn't that big a deal.
When the power goes out, I just take a break.

If I have to, I can use my phone to do the net thing, but haven't had to do that hardly at all.
After Hurricane Omar, I used my cell phone to get emails and access online databases. No big deal.

Wish I had the luxury of "just taking a break" -- not in my field!

Redundancy is the name of the game down here; I access two providers and tether through my AT&T phone as my tertiary backup. Stability is much better in some areas of the islands than in others.
