When searching for a new property, one of the factors that many people consider is the availability of broadband and mobile phone signal. Having a fast and reliable internet connection and good mobile coverage is essential for our increasingly connected lives. However, it can be difficult to assess the quality of these services in a specific location. recognizes this challenge and has introduced supplementary data to their property listings. This additional information includes broadband availability and predicted speed as well as mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength. By providing these details, aims to help property seekers make informed decisions about their potential new home.

When it comes to broadband, the predicted speed is measured in megabits per second (Mbit/s), indicating how fast the connection is. The readings can vary, and provides three different categories: Basic (up to 30 Mbit/s), Super-fast (between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s), and Ultra-fast (over 300 Mbit/s). These predictions are updated regularly but should be treated as estimates rather than guarantees.

Similarly, the mobile phone signal predictions are based on information obtained from the four major UK mobile network operators. This data gives an indication of the signal availability and predicted strength in a particular area. However, it’s important to note that these predictions are also subject to change and may not reflect the actual signal strength experienced on the ground.

While these predictions are a valuable addition to property listings, it’s always recommended to conduct further research and, if possible, visit the area in person to assess the quality of broadband and mobile phone signal. Remember, technology can be unpredictable, and individual circumstances may affect the actual experience.
