Mi casa, su oficina

Faster internet connections means more telecommuting. That's at least one - possibly unsurprising - workplace-related implication from the Pew Internet Project's report on "The Broadband Difference: How online Americans' behavior changes with high-speed Internet connections at home". And two-thirds of telecommuters say they do more work-related tasks at home since they have gotten broadband. Telecommuters also seem to help out with groups in their local communities a little more. Broadbanders number 24 million people in the US (about a fifth of all internet-connected Americans).
