Surely there should be some form of "policing" for these extrtemly inaccurate estimates. There isnt even anything in the disclaimer.
I was quite shocked as almost every checker I tried states my speeds are 1.5 - 3, which says to me Rightmove have "deliberately" made it so the results are based on top speeds within an extremly wide area.
I'm pretty sure if BB speeds are cited on Homereports they will be soon, so that makes me wonder what kind of accuracy there will be for that.
Just totaly bamboozled that such a large site would be "tampering" the results in this way.
I will share their response as I contacted them.
And aye Andrew your quite right people should be checking more thoroughly but alas there are some who aren't all that savvy with these things and will trust a big site like rightmove. This may even knock on to estate agents etc and it would burst yer heid!
Edit: Hate to point this out but your map is also wrong lol, the green dot is EXACTLY where my house is and it definately should be a red dot!
