Now, they make sure to always buy phone data ahead of time so they can access the internet from almost anywhere. As Basu Thakur and Hoy found, working while on the road isn’t easy. Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, you have to contend with Wi-Fi issues, distractions and noise, among other challenges.
