RootMetrics: Mobile signal quality more important than schools to UK home buyers

A new report from independent mobile analytics company RootMetrics found that a third of house hunters in the UK would be put off from buying a flat or a house if the mobile network performance proved to be poor. According to its second annual house purchasing decision, RootMetrics said 34 per cent rated mobile signal quality as more important than the quality of local schools (23 per cent). The report observed that 83 per cent of people have experienced poor signal strength at their home and over half (54 per cent) have had difficulties with their mobile internet. With landlines being used less frequently, almost half of people (47 per cent) have experienced poor call quality at home. Report
