Broadband helps job seekers

A new study by the Phoenix Center indicates that job seekers with access to broadband are more likely to find jobs. The study says it best to have broadband access, but even those still stuck on dial-up do better in their job searches than those with no Internet access at all.

The cost of broadband at home (averaging between $25 and $40 a month) also highlights the importance of libraries and public computing centers for job seekers. If you are out of work, you may have to cut out luxuries like broadband at home, so you need to a place to go to do your online job searches.
