Internet access opens a world of opportunities. Today, an estimated 90.8% of Americans have access to the Internet, and roughly 31% of U.S. adults claim to be online almost constantly. While the Internet provides its fair share of distractions, it also allows us to be productive in our work and daily lives. 

Read on to learn about online tools that can boost your productivity by improving time management, communication and organization. 

Manage your to-do list

High-speed Internet serves as a great resource to access time management tools.

Todoist also offers three pricing tiers, including a free option, so you can choose the service that’s right for you.

Communicate with others in an instant

When you need to get in touch quickly, applications like Slack, Google Hangouts, iMessage, and Microsoft Teams use high-speed Internet to quickly connect you with your colleagues.
