Working from home has become more and more popular over the years, and thanks to recent events, a lot of people are going to be doing it for the very first time. Working from home can be a difficult shift, but you can make the necessary changes to ensure it's as seamless of an experience as possible.

There are a lot of different factors you'll want to consider when working from home, one of which is your phone plan. Your phone is likely your primary method of communication, and as an at-home-worker, there are some things you need to keep in mind:

    t
  • Does your current phone plan offer good coverage at your house?
  • t
  • Do you have enough mobile data?
  • t
  • Can you use your phone as a hotspot if you want to work outside of your living room?

Shopping around for a new phone plan is a good idea at any time just to be sure you're getting the best deal/features possible, so take advantage of your new working situation to assess your current provider and see how they stack up against your other options.

When it comes to working from home, these are the plans we think are the best fit.

Visible Keep it simple

With pretty much every phone plan out there, you pay for your service month-to-month. That's how the industry's done it for years, but there's one company out there that thinks there's a better way to do business - Mint Mobile.

Instead of paying a phone bill every month, Mint Mobile sells you service in bulk. You have the option of paying for three, six, or twelve months of service upfront, resulting in an effective monthly rate as low as $25/month for unlimited talk, text, and 12GB of LTE data.

What else is great about Mint Mobile? Hotspot access is included for free, it works with basically all unlocked Android phones, and Mint is powered by T-Mobile's network (with 5G access coming soon).
