The Telegraph in England has published an engaging topic, via data from Rightmove, arguably the UKs biggest Property portal.
In the article, they contend that by not having fast/ultra fast broadband, then homeowners could potentially suffer up to a 20% reduction in their assets value.
They, Rightmove UK, base this on…
“research it (they) conducted among among 3,000 people found that broadband details were ranked as a more important feature when searching for property than information on transport links and nearby schools.”
Makes for interesting reading, and even more so amongst the amount of #gigatown vibe out there in NZ at present.
The “fuel guage” they use above is quite compelling too. What data should always be….easy to read and understand.
Mind you, paying GB£5,000,000 you’d probably expect no less.
It certainly would aid any New Zealand area, including Nelson where hundreds already support the #gigatownNSN hashtag.

Hmmm….seems a bit “deja vue” around about now?
