Mobile broadband 'can help UK workers reclaim the summer'
Employees across the UK are being urged to "reclaim the summer" by making full use of mobile broadband services.

That's the latest advice from leading broadband provider Orange, as it cited research which shows that 90 per cent of workers spend an average of up to an hour on their daily commute.

Orange suggests that by using the latest communications tools such as mobile broadband, employees can use their time more productively.

With the upcoming advent of British Summer Time and longer daylight hours, the broadband provider believes now is a great time for people to devote more hours to enjoyable activities, such as catching up with friends and eating out.

"Working remotely, whether from home or on the journey there, can be just as productive as working from the office," said Robert Ainger, director of corporate business at Orange UK.

A study conducted by Regus recently found that one-third of people have considered resigning from their jobs due to a long commute to their workplace.
