Alongside square footage, views, utility costs, and the myriad of other details that go into a house or rental hunt, a increasingly important feature is internet service. I've known some people who rely upon fast internet speeds pass over listings to "DSL-only" or reputed slow connection speeds...
As someone who works from home, I can relate to this need for speed.
