Fiber internet for work-from-home Portlanders

According to a post-pandemic study conducted by the Pew Research Center, 32.1% of workers in Multnomah County work from home. Considering that Portland is a technology hub with progressive companies and infrastructure, it’s no surprise that it tops the state’s list of remote workforces. That’s why more Portlanders are looking for an internet connection that’s fast, secure, and reliable.

The growing need for WiFi speed in Portland

Before the pandemic, working from home was relatively uncommon. According to the 2000 census, only 3.3% of Americans worked from home. Studies conducted in 2020 showed that more than 40% of people worked from home during lockdown. The massive increase was driven by necessity but enabled by technology.

In the Portland area, less than 8% of people worked from home before COVID-19, but that number nearly tripled by 2022. That’s why more Portlanders are counting on a fast, reliable internet connection to fit their professional and personal needs.

You want a fast and secure connection for video calls, streaming, file sharing, and accessing various online services and resources to get the job done. You also need to consider the impact of non-work usage when selecting an internet package, especially if other household members are streaming videos, gaming, or using the internet for other data-consuming activities.

Why choose Quantum Fiber?

Fiber with speed of up to 940 Mbps has a 20 times faster upload speed than cable (Comparison, as of 10/7/22, based on CenturyLink fiber technology with wired upload speeds of up to 940 Mbps to major cable providers’ 1GIG cable service over DOCSIS 3.1 technology with upload speeds of 35 Mbps.)
