Majority of home hunters 'want superfast connections'
New research has revealed the ambitious nature of UK house hunters when it comes to securing a property with the best possible broadband speeds.

Such is the ubiquitous nature of the internet in the modern world that more than two-thirds (72per cent) of respondents to a recent poll by stated they would reject a property that met all their criteria for moving, but which had a slow internet connection.

Responding to the results, Founder of Mark Jackson commented: "It’s interesting to find that the vast majority of respondents to our survey would only tolerate, as a minimum, a broadband speed of above 25 Mbps."

He added that the fact the government has now made the delivery of this level of connectivity a priority for 95 per cent of the nation within the next two years is therefore good news for the UK's homebuyers.
