Third of Brits 'would move for better broadband'
Up to one-third of people would consider moving home if it meant they would have access to a considerable boost in broadband connectivity in their new property.

This is the conclusion  of a recent poll completed by estate agent Strutt & Parker, which showed that for 35.8 per cent of survey respondents, the quality of broadband services was either 'important' or 'very important' in their decision of where to live.

Indeed, broadband was shown to be a stronger factor in people's desires to move home than being close to friends and family (34.3 per cent) or having more space (30.7 per cent).

A statement from Strutt & Parker read: "For the second year in a row, lifestyle change was the biggest motivation for moving, followed by access to shops and amenities.

"A new category for the survey this year was broadband connectivity, which has shot in as the third highest motivation and highlights the desire to be technologically connected."
