The merging of computers and telecommunications technologies is facilitating people to communicate effectively across geographically dispersed locations. Growth of the Internet has made it possible for organizations to use the network as the resource to interconnect people and various organizational units. Advances in wireless technologies have increased mobility of individuals and hence the ability to work from remote locations. In this paper, we look at whether telecommunications and computer connectivity allow people to live in suburban locations, farther from center of city where their offices are located. The findings from the research will help us analyze whether people prefer to live outside the city limits and telecommute if adequate telecommunications and information technologies are available.
