Just got a query.  Work for a building company with guys regularly on sites with their laptops.  I have a router setup with VPN access on our server so that people can dial in.

I have some guys that want to remote in which they can do with their own broadband, but we have some instances where they are on a building site and this isn't feasible.

Do you have any suggestions please for the best way around this?

Check with your Cellular provider about using some data modems.

yep was thinking of that option.  Most sites will have a phone line in there so just wandering if we could utilise that in anyway

Verizon has good deals on PC card cellular broadband adaptors.  The speed is excellent at around 500kbps down and 128kbps up.  Not bad for cellular.  We recently got two cards for $150 and the service is around $80-100/month for both with unlimited access.

Something you could consider is a bgan service via GPRS satellite.
(http://broadband.inmarsat.com/)
It’s very easy to configure, easy for multiple computers/laptops to use either via a network switch or blue tooth. The cost is about $9/MB, but you only pay for what you use. It’s an always on service that is portable and industrial. I am not sure geographically where you are located but bgan is a good solution for providing mobile broadband service.
