                           Firms suffer Net loss of 2.5m as the
                           staff surf
                           By Robert Uhlig, Technology Correspondent 


                           TIME wasted by employees surfing the
                           Internet is costing big companies 2.5
                           million a year, a study has shown.

                           The average employee spent 30 minutes a day
                           idly browsing the Internet. Half of those
                           who used the Net in the office looked at
                           pornographic websites during working hours.
                           Many also used the Net to look for a new
                           job.

                           Despite the availability of cheap or free
                           filter systems and blocking software which
                           prevent workers downloading offensive,
                           racist or sexual material, two-thirds of
                           organisations did not bother with it.
