    The need for good broadband has been central to many peoples house hunting for some time, but proof it is becoming standard practice is now available as RightMove make broadband speeds a standard feature of their listings.

    As with many web site selectors some caution is required; as you’ll see here they claim an average speed of 1.56 Mbps is available. They have listed B4RN (Broadband for the Rural North) at 1,000 Mbps, but without mentioning theirs is a near symmetric service. More importantly Rightmove’s averaging algorithm is not based on the current take-up of the B4RN services which in much of Arkholme exceeds over 50%. Caveat emptor – Let the buyer beware!
