How Can You Work From Home When Your Internet Sucks?

Updated: May 25, 2021

And why you shouldn't settle for less with ADSL or Satellite.

The global pandemic has caused a change in many aspects of life.

For your child, it may be the switch to remote learning — For you, it might be working from home instead of at the office.

Now there's nothing wrong with these changes, but what do they both have in common?

They both need a Reliable Internet Connection to end -

* The frustration of having to wait for videos to load.

* Getting bottlenecked wi-fi because more than one person is on it.

* Or even having the internet cut out at times due to its unreliability.

Now imagine these problems as well as daily zoom meetings for work and school.

Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Luckily there is a solution for all issues, but more on that later.

Currently, the issue lies with the way you get your connection.

At the moment for a lot of people the 2 main methods available are ADSL and Satellite.


ADSL runs on old copper lines that have been in use since the infrastructure to get internet to your town was put in place.

However, as content demands more speed and reliability due to its size and detail; it is a struggle to get anything consistent for most people.


Internet coming from a satellite requires many steps.

To get any information via satellite internet,

* Your modem has to connect to the satellite network,

* The satellite connects to a ground station,

* Then the ground station goes to the internet,

This can causes lots of delays. Combined with low bandwidth, that's a recipe for slow wi-fi.

Well, you may have seen “Starlink” being offered to your area, it is only available for limited numbers as it is in beta testing phase. This technology is new, so it may still have a lot of issues it needs to solve before it can be used on a broader scale by the masses

Not to mention that you have to go on a waiting list, and pay a deposit before you get confirmation of the delivery date. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee and instructions to install the unit on your lawn or another open area.

If you want it roof-mounted, which is the way to go, you need to get a professional installer unless you have the do-it-yourself skills.

This is where Pica Electrical comes into the picture.

Pica Electrical brings 15 years of electrical & solar experience to Australian consumers. They understand the struggle of inconsistent internet speeds, especially in rural communities.

The internet and wifi service side of the Pica Electrical business was developed whilst installing solar for some of our semi-rural & rural customers who were suffering from a poor internet connection. Solar systems require a private network and stable internet connection for remote monitoring.

We researched the marketplace and have sourced premium products that are imported from Europe that are of industrial quality. This standard far exceeds anything provided by the teleco's in Australia.

At Pica Electrical, we offer a free demonstration of the system that we provide. This system is reliable and capable of improving your latency and speed.

We attend your address to run a test and let you connect to the system and see it working on your own devices.

We will also help you optimize your data connectivity around home.
