Delaware ranks as the best U.S. state for working from home, followed by North Carolina and Georgia, according to a study by personal finance website WalletHub.
The site’s report compared data from the 50 states and the District of Columbia using 12 key metrics, including internet cost, cybersecurity and how large homes are in the state.
Alaska ranked at the bottom in the study, WalletHub said.
One reason for Alaska’s low score is that only 68 percent of Alaskan households have broadband access, WalletHub communications director Jill Gonzalez told The Web Writer Spotlight.
“Alaska is the fourth-lowest ranked state when it comes to cybersecurity and has the third-highest cost of electricity in the nation,” she said. “For many people, working from home in Alaska will be difficult, costly and risky.”
