It seems that broadband is a lot like an en-suite bathroom. In as much as the presence of a quality broadband connection at your property could add some value to it, although probably not as much as a cubicle with a power shower.
This is according to a survey conducted by ISPreview, polling almost 750 Brits on the issue.
Half of respondents said they would pay more for a house with faster broadband than they currently had access to. And 69% indicated that they would be put off a “beautiful new house” if they knew it lacked a “fast” broadband connection.
74% of folks described broadband as “critically important” to their home life. So there you have it – perhaps estate agents are now going to start mentioning broadband on their blurb about a property.
