Home buyers 'desire super-fast network connectivity' - Network Cables

Building new homes without the provision of next-generation networking technology could prove to be a mistake for property developers.

A new study, conducted by ISPreview.co.uk, has indicated that the majority of home buyers are taking an active interest in the connectivity capability of properties they are looking at.

Some 71.9 per cent of survey respondents said they would reject an otherwise-perfect home if it offered lower broadband speeds than their chosen minimum.

And for around two-thirds (67.1 per cent), these were 50Mbps - speeds that standard ADSL network connections are unable to support.

To reach 50Mbps, fibre-optic cables or other next-generation networking solutions are required, either in the form of a hybrid connection or a full-fibre line.

And this is a consideration for property developers as they plan new projects; should they lay fibre cables from the outset, or expect buyers to upgrade the cable infrastructure themselves?

Another 17.9 per cent of ISPreview.co.uk survey respondents said they would only consider buying a property where 25Mbps speeds were available.

Some 12.2 per cent said they required at least 10Mbps, while 1.8 per cent thought 2Mbps to 5Mbps would be ample to meet their online needs.

Mark Jackson, Editor of ISPreview.co.uk, said that for those that can afford to buy a home, a property purchase will probably be "the single biggest investment that they will ever make".

"As such the desire to ensure that you’re moving into a place where the internet, which is considered by many to be essential, runs at a good speed has become increasingly significant," he stated.

Mr Jackson said the decision about how much people pay for a house will always come down to "the simple matter of personal choice" - something which is different for everybody.

"Although, for most people, access to superfast broadband is clearly now a key part of that equation" he stated.
