    It is a poll is answered by users of the internet so surely we are more likely to find decent internet being a higher priority than the population average.
    The above comment was meant to be friendly and non-judgemental.

    This also fits with all buyers are potential landlords.

    A flat without high speed broadband will not get tenants.

    On the other hand, they can't complain about being haunted or hooker activity (bed spring squeeking from upstairs) once they have moved in, as they are not valid reasons for breaking the rental agreement.

    Even 6 years ago, before I bought my current house, one thing I made sure I did was to type the postcode into a broadband checker to make sure I would get a decent speed.
