"Millions of Americans are working from home due to the coronavirus, many of them struggling to focus at makeshift desks in a spare bedroom or the kitchen table, with kids or roommates doing the same," says Consumer Reports.
It can be difficult to stay focused and productive while working from home if there's a lot of background noise and unreliable tools. Luckily, there are ways to fix both problems.
Noise-canceling headphones can be a godsend for parents and employees with roommates. If background noise can't be heard, there's less of a chance of being distracted by it.
Now, technical issues for employees working from home can steam from a number of sources. For starters, a home's wifi network. The internet is slow or glitchy, it could be because the best internet provider for the area isn't being used or maybe an upgrade is needed for faster internet speeds. It could also be that an upgraded router is needed. Additionally, it can be difficult to focus on such a small screen such as the ones on laptops. It may be time to get an affordable desktop monitor.
When the internet starts getting shaky, Americans working from home will likely pull out their phones to either diagnose the problem or look for a new provider. This provides internet providers with a few opportunities. Last year, 58.6% of Potential Internet Provider Switchers took action after seeing sponsored search results.
