Montana’s Big Sky Country is best known for its tourist attractions, like the breathtaking Yellowstone National Park, or its rich history, such as the site of the Battle of the Little Bighorn. When you think of Montana, you may think of hunting or skiing; high tech job opportunities are probably not the first thing to spring to mind. However, information security analysts who would like to live and work in this beautiful state can do so.
Montana’s official state website notes that the state has high-speed Internet connections to cities like Seattle, Denver and Minneapolis; that frame relay and ISDN lines are now available in all major cities; and that digital subscriber lines soon will be available in most major cities. The site also points out other advantages to living and working in Montana, like affordable housing, a low crime rate and a clean environment.
