I have worked remote via Windows Remote Desktop Services and Citrix virtual desktops since 2003. Back in 2003, I was using an AT&T aDSL connection that would blink out a couple of times a day but otherwise, I had good experiences working remotely. But back then I did not have to complete with Netflix and Hulu, YouTube and online gaming, or a half dozen smartphones streaming Spotify in my house. Checking DHCP leases recently, I found 21 devices on our home router. TWENTY ONE! Gradually over the past few years, it seems my entire house connected to the Internet. These connected devices have brought many conveniences and more than a little entertainment, but they also brought aggravation when working from home in the form of laggy remote desktop connections, spotty VoIP, and staggering video conferences.
