The study by eMarketer, as reported by The Wall Street Journal Online, said the 50 million office Web users are no low-rent bunch: More than 70% have a college degree or higher and roughly half have household incomes of $75,000 or more. Almost nine out of 10 do their office surfing on a broadband connection.
According to the study, the at-work surfers use the occasion to contribute to the economy with 60% of online dollars spent in the workplace.
Some 38% of the at-work users are employed by large companies, while nearly four out of 10 come from small businesses. Finally, at-work users spend more time online than at-home only users.
