Re: Modern homes
10K per employee yearly? That’s quite a lot of savings.

Innovation
The U.S. could rank in the top 5 in terms of innovations and technology if broadband was provided to the underserved and unserved areas that need it the most. The next Steve Jobs, Bill Gates or Mack Zuckerberg is waiting to get connected.

I have done that
I have done that, too, using public WiFi from a parking lot. Once, when there was a power failure across my neighborhood, I drove to a fast food lot with my laptop to upload my work to the office.

Re: Modern homes
afwriter: That's bad there are no co-working spaces near you this time. It would have been a great solution for your current situation while visiting your MiL. I have used co-working spaces in several cities around Europe and the UK and they are great. It's basically the future of working, I would say.

When you go back to your city, try to find one and go to explore. You will see the benefits this kind of space brings to startups, bigger companies with  remore workers, remote workers. One of the biggest benefits to anyone working in a co-working space is the super fast broadband connection that supports all the many devices you can imagine.
