While many workers are eager to return to the office, some prefer to continue working from the comfort of their homes instead. In CommercialCafe’s latest study, we wanted to see which U.S. cities are the best for working remotely in terms of internet connectivity, safety, and local amenities.

Here are some highlights:

  • Atlanta is #3 on our top 20 list overall, but is also the top city for remote working among cities with more than 300,000 residents.
  • More than 4% of Atlanta’s workforce was working from home in 2019, an increase of 38% in four years.
  • The city also had the highest score in our Remote Work Friendliness Index — with 67.3 points, highlighting the city’s fast internet, professional office availability, low housing costs, and thriving social and entertainment scene.
