Telecommuting and Tech Industry in Franklin

Franklin currently has 4,244 active workers who perform their job primarily from home via telecommuting. 53.02 of them take home less than $75,000 annually. Given that Franklin has an above-average fiber footprint, it makes sense that home offices are popular with locals. Access to strong symmetrical fiber infrastructure allows for more reliable and dependable service compared with older network. Fiber is a robust technology choice that can easily support cloud apps, video conferencing, and other intensive work-related uses. When you're setting up home WiFi for telecommuting, be sure to verify data limitations. Some Internet connections have data caps. This can be frustrating if you consume a lot of data for work purposes like video conferencing, etc. Business-class connections can be considered if you need more than a typical residential plan.

Data Caps on Franklin Internet Plans

Internet providers have been moving to add "data caps" onto their consumer Internet plans in recent years. The trend is certainly true for Franklin, with providers such as Xfinity adding capped plans. This won't really matter for most Internet users, but may affect households who share the connection with multiple other family or friends or "power users" who consume a lot of high-def video. An HD video stream uses about three Gigabytes of data hourly, according to Netflix guidelines. SD video consumes about 1GB/hour.
