Now more than ever our broadband speeds at home are crucial to successful home working – Hyperoptic ran a survey and fast broadband is now the fourth utility after gas, electricity and water.

Harry Gladwin Partner at The Buying Solution says; Broadband is the buzz word of property searches right now. Those moving out of cities into the countryside need reassurance that their connectivity will not be affected. With firms such as Gigaclear rolling out super fast broadband throughout the Cotswolds in particular, many clients note that speeds in the most remote locations are faster than they see in central London. I was surprised to recently connect into the wifi of a summerhouse in Gloucestershire whilst inspecting a property and found that the download and upload speeds were around 100MB/s. Fibre is not always the solution especially with 4 and 5G or satellite options – an AV solutions company or a business such as Wurzel are a must for more rural homes that don’t quite get the speed experienced in towns and villages. Elon Musk’s Starlink project may well be a gamechanger going forward ensuring even the most rural areas will be as connected as cities providing lag less connections of 100MB across the entire world.”
