There is no question that the way we work is changing. Savvy corporate and digital nomads are actively on the hunt for their new business and family retreat in the sun. Now, with the coming 5G revolution, even the most remote Greek island can be your new office base.
Here is why 5G will have a positive impact on real estate mobility:
Everyone who works remotely knows that the biggest challenge is relying on internet connections that aren’t always reliable.
5G changes that because you no longer work at the mercy of the closest Wi-Fi hotspot. Having ultra-fast wireless capabilities built into your devices means that you’ll be able to connect from virtually anywhere once carriers complete rolling out their 5G networks. It overcomes any barriers and costs related to those dream remote locations km away from the telephone and internet grid.
With the increased speed and bandwidth of 5G comes the ability to work in some very interesting new ways. All kinds of work that currently require an employee’s physical presence will be able to be done as 5G allows not just remote work but virtual work. That means remote workers will be able to actually interact with and manipulate objects or data from far away, in real-time, just as if they were there.
For example, perhaps your job requires you to be onsite so you have access to vast amounts of data. Photographers and videographers edit and manage terabytes of data, the same applies to data analysts or IT specialists.
The ability to work from anywhere, instead of having your work environment dictated by your job role or function, will lead to increased productivity as workers are able to create an environment that works for them. Living on an idyllic waterfront estate, enjoying the warmth of the Greek climate in harmony with nature or enjoying an early morning swim before your first videoconference is not anymore a luxury but can be part of your daily routine skyrocketing your productivity.
As 5G will cover most of the Greek territory, new, off the beaten track locations around the country will offer a whole new meaning to the dream quality lifestyle we all aspire to enjoy one day.
