Why new properties should have FTTP
According to a study of British homebuyers, a good broadband connection now tops off street parking and access to local amenities as one of the vital deciding factors for people buying a new house. The study also finds that one in ten buyers have walked away from properties with poor internet connection and that broadband is connected even before gas.
Home owners in London are also willing to pay up to 3% above the market price for properties in areas offering very fast internet speeds.
Therefore Openreach recommends FTTP for all new properties.
We offer FTTP, free of charge, to all new housing developments with 30 or more residential or mixed residential/commercial premises.
For sites with 2 – 29 premises then we’ll offer FTTP if you are willing to pay a small contribution to the cost.
