Can 5G help make it easier to work from home?

frank lamjus

FOSTER CITY, Calif. — Now that so many of us have become accustomed to working from home, one question that might come up is, does 5G really matter anymore? After all, most people are probably connecting to the internet, and all of their work colleagues, with their in-home Wi-Fi via a broadband connection like a cable modem. So, why would they need a different type of fast wireless connection?

Well, it turns out there are quite a few reasons, though some won’t matter much until we start to venture out a bit more.

First, as I wrote about a few weeks back (see “Can 5G become your new broadband connection?”), 5G is starting to become a more viable alternative to cable as a high-speed internet connection source. Thanks to a technology called Fixed Wireless Access (FWA), which is at the heart of Verizon’s 5G Home service, you can get a

frank lamjus

Football is set to return to our screens following a three-month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

With 92 games left to play in the season, sadly you won’t be able to see them in person, as strict social distancing measures have been put in place, meaning no fans are permitted and only a maximum of 300 people — including broadcast staff, journalists, commentators, doping officials and scouts — will be allowed inside stadiums on match days, as reported by The Independent.

However, you will be able to watch all the games across BT Sport, BBC Sport, Sky Sports and Amazon Prime.

Sky Sports is showing 64 games, 25 of which will be made free-to-air and available on Freeview, BT Sport will be showing 20 games, BBC Sport airing four and the remaining four will be shown for free on Amazon Prime which will not require an Amazon Prime

5 Home Safety Features That Could Lower Your Homeowners Insurance Costs

frank lamjus

Owning a home means more than just paying a mortgage; it also means keeping up with peripheral costs, like property taxes and homeowners insurance. The cost of your homeowners insurance policy will vary based on a number of factors — the size of your home, its age, and its location. The average homeowners insurance policy costs $1,192 a year, as per the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, but if you’re being quoted a much higher number, installing a few key safety features could lower your premiums and make your policy much more affordable for the long haul. Here are a few such features to look into.
