Orange has charted the number of British workers choosing to work from home last week, as heavy downfalls of snow meant many found it hard to travel.

The business broadband provider recorded a 30 per cent increase in mobile data usage on the first day of the snow - Monday, February 2nd - plateauing at 20 per cent for the rest of the week.

Paul Tollet, Orange UK's vice-president Business, highlighted the advantages of having a mobile broadband connection in extreme weather conditions.

He said: "Our business customers have really felt the benefit of mobile and remote technologies during the last week, as they've enabled many employees to continue working, away from the office.

Before going on to conclude: "With the right solutions... in place, mobile and flexible working can effectively give businesses an extension of their office space, enabling day to day operations to continue, whatever the weather."
