If you can Keep your money at home on the tree, not in the tank or hassles of commuiting to and from work.

  • Gas Savings

$1,120 per year or more, and the Time and stress is valued at a much higher amount than the gas savings.

If you have good High Speed Internet at home this allows you to choose to work from home full-time, you immediately eliminate any costs associated with your commute, whether they be from driving to work or taking public transportation. Even if you’re walking or biking to work, you’ll wind up with lower bike maintenance costs and fewer pairs of sneakers to buy.

But in all seriousness, the average U.S. worker commutes 30 miles and 60 minutes round-trip every day, according to the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Labor. If the average gallon of gas costs $3.59, according to AAA, and you average 25 MPG, by not commuting to work, you will save $1,120 on gas every year.

  • Car Maintenance

Consumer Reports estimates the median cost of annual car maintenance is $312, which only includes maintenance and repairs. If you factor in lowered insurance costs and slower depreciation from driving your vehicle less, that savings can rise significantly.

It may not seem like much, but every little bit helps when you're potentially taking a decreased salary to work at home.

  • Dry Cleaning & Laundering

SAVINGS: $600 - $1,000 per year

If you’re working from home, you don’t have to worry about maintaining a professional wardrobe which often has to be dry cleaned.

  • Lunches & Coffee

SAVINGS: $832 per year

Eating out on a regular basis is costly.

Let’s assume you’re a fairly thrifty person and you have lunch out with coworkers twice each week at $5 a pop. Throw in a morning coffee twice a week for $3 each, and you’re spending $16 each week, or $832 each year eating out while working in a regular office. Telecommuting makes it much easier to make lunches and coffee at home, which won’t eliminate your food and coffee expenses entirely, but will certainly bring them down.

  • Vacation Time & "Real" Salary

SAVINGS: $5,553 per year

If the average U.S. worker commutes almost 30 minutes each way to work, it adds up to an extra 60 minutes daily that we spend for the purpose of work, but don’t actually get paid for. By saving that 60 minutes every day, the average full-time telecommuter will work 260 fewer hours, or 32.5 fewer eight-hour work days (11 24-hour days) each year. Not having to commute to work equals a LOT more free time throughout the year.

When you take those hours and add them all up, it really makes a difference in terms of salary. If you’re making $50,000 a year but commuting to the office, you’re making $21.37 per hour (because you’re working an eight-hour work day plus a one-hour commute for a total of nine hours daily). If you aren’t commuting, your $50,000 salary becomes $24.04 per hour because your eight-hour work day is really eight hours. Add that up throughout the year, and it’s like you’re making $5,553 more annually.

  • Tax Breaks

SAVINGS: $750 per year

If you work from home, you may be able to claim several home office deductions that office-bound workers can’t touch.

These include deductions for your home office space, property taxes, office decor, and maintenance and business expenses. Even if you’re a full-time employee (and not a freelancer or contractor), you can still claim these deductions and expenses as a telecommuter. Depending on your home office set-up, these deductions can vary widely, but the IRS estimates that the average home office deduction is $3,000 which lowers a typical tax obligation by $750.

  • It All Adds Up

TOTAL SAVINGS FROM WORKING AT HOME: minimum of $4,172 per year

If we go conservative and just tally up the actual, tangible savings of working from home, the average telecommuter can save at least $4,172 each year! This doesn’t even include the cost savings from more vacation time, time overall, lowered stress, and the higher “real” salary mentioned above.

So, the next time you consider the salary difference between an in-office job and a telecommuting job, be sure to take into consideration all the different ways working from home can save you money. Opting for a smaller salary to be able to work from home might be the smarter choice after all.

BigBox Carriers Vs Us

Fri 20, 2015 10:22 AM

1.Higher Cost Big-Box retailer Wireless (AT&T) (Verizon) (Sprint)

Versus

2.Reliable Low cost Wireless (Directlink Broadband ) Startup plans

  1.  Cell Carriers
  2.  Wireless (Local Provider)

How does the BIG BOX providers i.e. (Cell Phone) Wireless Internet Access work?

Wireless Internet service consists of two parts: Plan and Equipment

1. A Internet service data plan from your cellular provider.

Wireless Internet service startup plans cost about $50 a month for 5 GB of data usage. Bandwidth overage charges are extremely expensive, so be sure to monitor your monthly broadband data usage closely.

2.A  Internet service data plan from your wireless ISP local provider i.e. (Directlink)

Wireless Internet service startup plans cost about $40 a month for 100 GB of data usage. Bandwidth overage charges are very low compared to CELL phone vendors, most likely your average usage for medium plans like these never exceed 60GB per month, If so then you upgrade to a larger plan and don’t worry about the overages because the price is built-in to the plan i.e. like a medium plan would have a 150GB cap for only 10.00 more per month.

1. B  the hardware to receive and process the wireless broadband data.

Most BIG BOX providers have free or heavily discounted wireless Internet devices available, often referred to as Air Cards, when you sign a service contract.

Cellular Cards & Connection Devices

  • Built-in Wireless - Devices with integrated hardware i.e.: Netbooks’.

2. B The hardware required for Directink Broadband wireless broadband data plans.

Signs of internet fraud

Tue 17, 2015 4:03 AM

How it works: The most common fraud arrives by email, claiming to be from your bank, credit card company, or some other service you frequent. It usually asks you to send your account details, and sometimes your PIN, either by return email or through a website. Various tricks are used to lower your guard, such as 'security and maintenance upgrades,' 'investigation of irregularities,' or 'bills/charges due.'

Fraudsters typically scan the Internet for email addresses or generate them at random. They don't need an online service provider's mailing lists. Some may send just a few dozen emails while others send thousands. Even if only a few unsuspecting people bite, it can be worth the effort to break into their accounts.

 

Safety checks to avoid fraud:

  • Check official websites for announcements.
  • Use only secure sites for keying in financial or personal information.
  • Take common sense privacy precautions, such as avoiding unknown emails.
  • Only use your PIN through the official log-in site offered by your provider.
  • inancial transactions at internet cafes and libraries.
  • Act quickly if you think you've been conned. If you get a suspicious email, tell your service provider.

If you have sent any details through an email or website that you're a bit worried about, contact your bank, credit card company or service provider right away!

Cambium Equipment

Fri 15, 2014 4:29 PM

Why we make the move away from WiMAX?

In the recent past, 802.16-based wireless products were “the next big thing.”  However, this protocol and the radio technology that supported it has withered in both availability and performance.  Chipset manufacturers have moved on to other platforms, and Cambium Networks has focused our efforts on producing industry leading solutions based on our extremely flexible software-based architecture.  This architecture was built from the ground up to support fixed outdoor wireless access, and is uniquely positioned in the market to provide the utmost scalability and reliability in unlicensed and lightly licensed spectrum including 5 GHz, 2.4 GHz, 3.5 GHz and 3.65 GHz bands.

DirectLink is serious about Cambium Equipment. Cambium performs in the most extreme weather conditions for more reliability. Faster, easier, enjoy uninterrupted HD video streaming and gaming. DirectLink's network upgrade brings serious competition to the Colorado High Speed internet market.
