Think he means you won't need that much data. Impossible to predict what you will need though but if you are using it only for work and the VOIP part i'm guessing it wont be too much.

Lets put it this way, they may promise to pay you well (but it won't pay as much as you think). This will lead you to pay out a lot of money for not much return and for what you are doing it should be fine on the connection you have and is not worth paying out £60 per month extra.

I have asked my brother about this and he said that he was able to work on a 1 meg ADSL line while doing the job. So if the company you are going to work for is legit I would ask them to justify why the minimum speed?

Having VOIP on a 4G connection could be risky with dropouts in this instance as it could be commission based work (not very good if calls keep getting dropped as it would be mean lost commission).

I would think he is probably referring to a travel agent as opposed to a Tour operator.

I used to work from home on a standard broadband for a travel agent which was fine. However working for one of the large Tour operators which I shall be doing is different. I am concerned that I wont actually have enough with 200gb but if this is my only option I will have to take it. As someone else said, I will check the cost for additional data which I hope I wont need. But I think I am better just taking a chance and seeing what I use in that first month and gauge it from there. At least it will enable me some time, and be able to achieve the initial speed requests that they have asked for.

I understand what you are saying. As I have said to another user I have worked from home in travel using standard broadband fine before and been fine. So I assume your brother is working for a similar travel agent. However this is for a major Tour operator, So there is the difference re what is required.

You have not really helped your situation because at no point in this thread have you provided:-

1) Any indication of your estimated broadband speeds from the BT wholesale checker which would require you to use the address option as I presume you are on a TalkTalk phone line.

This would at least give a ball park figure for expected speeds but it can often be very conservative, on my ADSL line the checker gave figures of around 4 to 5 Mbps but I always achieved the full ADSL Max sync of over 8Mbps

2) Line stats from your Modem/Router when connected to the test socket - this is the crucial test to determine what your line is able to achieve.

As for you so called solution of a 4G connection, the price is extortionate.

Also I cannot believe any reputable company would attempt to enforce such requirements for your Broadband connection which is actually not under your control. If they have certain requirements the company should be paying to provide the connection.

Something doesn't smell right here. As you've pointed out and others have done so as well that the OP is very reluctant to provide any details.

They have also said that the job is with a major Tour operator. If this was the case then what they have posted on this thread is complete rubbish as all major tour operators will pay for their home workers internet connection if need be.

My only conclusion is either they are being scammed or they are not telling the truth on this thread.

The total refusal of the OP to provide any information relating to their current connection despite repeated requests is fishy at best.
My only conclusion is either they are being scammed or they are not telling the truth on this thread.
