More than four out of five federal employees at GS-13 or above are frustrated with their mobile device offerings and services at their agencies, according to a report released Monday by public-private IT partnership Meritalk.

About 65 percent are also dissatisfied with slow connection speeds at their agency and 57 percent find their security procedures cumbersome, according to the report.

Meritalk estimated that increasing mobile connection speeds and enhancing federal mobile networks would produce an additional 364 hours a year in productivity gains per employee about $14,000 for each federal employee, according to the report.

The report also found that 81 percent of federal employees at GS-13 or above connect remotely to work at least once a week while 54 percent connect remotely at least once a day. While laptops remain the most popular method of connecting remotely for 88 percent of employees, 19 percent also connect remotely with tablets.
