The coronavirus pandemic has changed how and where we work in the United States. Even those who are still going in to their place of work have seen changes made to keep people as safe as possible.

For many in Lubbock and around the United States, changes at the workplace place means remote working, or working from home. To be fair, the idea of remote working was starting to catch on even before the coronavirus pandemic. Many businesses experimented with remote working after seeing it successfully used and seeing that in many cases, worker productivity went up.

The coronavirus has accelerated remote working and for Lubbock, that might be a good thing. According to a study done by FinanceBuzz, Lubbock ranks as the 3rd best city in the United States to work remotely.

FinanceBuzz weighed a number of factors including cost of living, wi-fi speed, delivery options, affordable three-bedroom homes, and more.

Lubbock ranked 3rd in the study behind Kansas City and Milwaukee. Other Texas cities making the top 25 included San Antonio at #5 and Austin at #17.
