TRANSACTION LEVELS RISE IN AREAS WITH ACCESS TO ULTRA-FAST BROADBAND

A quick analysis of sales volumes to date in 2018 indicates that in areas where sales have increased compared to the same period last year, on average virtually half of all properties have access to ultra-fast broadband, with an average download speed of 46.4mbps. In contrast, in those areas where sales have fallen, just under one third of properties have access to ultra-fast broadband and the average download speed is slightly lower at just 42.9mbps. While broadband coverage and speed may well not be the most important factors in choosing which home to buy, their impact on daily live is ever increasing. 89% of adults now use the internet each week, up from just 51% in 2006 (ONS), and a rising proportion of the population works from home for at least part of the week.
