Reimburse teleworking employees for internet service. This will not only encourage more teleworking, but also encourage those employees who have to pay extra for high-speed service to do so, in order to save time in sending/receiving internet correspondence. For example, a document that one rural employee recently had to upload remotely to the workplace server took over an hour; with higher speed internet, this would have taken only a few minutes. Collectively, this could save millions of dollars across the government, just in employee time required to upload/download documents and emails each day.
