Smile I have a question!? USB Connection

Do you guys know if ANY of the wahm job companies aka Arise, Convergys, VIPDesk etc. will accept something like a Verizon wireless modem internet connection?

Set Your Location

I ask because my mothers wifi is always going out-- we have comcast (xfinity) and it ALWAYS goes out I can't even do regular internet searches without the net going out My grandmother on the other hand has a verizon internet usb connection and we're able to use that anytime, any place! Never a weak signal, but ANY suggestions from you guys would be great!

Thanx

No unfortutantely they require land line connection because of latency.

I agree about the landline. Most work at home employers will require both a landline and a fast reliable Internet connection.

If your Internet service is so unreliable, you may want to consider switching to another provider. If you are offered a work at home position, getting a land line really isn't that expensive and you may be able to write if off as an expense.

Hi. I'm not sure if this will help, but I found a post on here a while back regarding non phone jobs. Here's the link just in case you'd like to look at it:

If this is not what you are looking for, then I apologize!

Well, if you are a writer or have other skills, then you also have more options as far as internet and cell vs landline connections are concerned.
