One in six Britons will use their broadband connection to work from home on Christmas Day, it has been reported.

Broadband provider Demon Internet claims workers will spend an average of ten hours using the internet over the festive weekend.

Some four per cent of survey respondents said they would actually spend longer than normal working on December 25th, logging in for over eight hours each.

Almost everybody (95 per cent) working from home said they would be sending and receiving work emails, and over two thirds (68 per cent) will be accessing files and documents on the business network through a remote connection.

Matt Cantwell, Head of Demon, said the internet service provider had identified a growing trend for Brits to work from home even at the unlikeliest of times.

"As a nation we're no longer restricted by set working hours and are often the most productive when working whenever and wherever suits us best.

"New technologies, such as smartphones and faster internet connections, are allowing more people to work from home when they need to, helping them to manage their work/life balance."
