Movers mapped by Gocompare.com

first_imgThere might be no place like home, but millions of people move around the UK every year: in 2014, a total of 2.85 million people moved throughout the UK, roughly one in 20 people.Twenty-somethings might gravitate towards London, but where do they go once they’re tired of the Big Smoke? Where are people in their 30s moving to? And which places are popular for those over 60?New analysis by Gocompare.com answers these questions in a new interactive map which reveals some of the most popular places people are moving to throughout the UK, which places people are leaving, and where people are staying put.Findings from the analysis, which was based on data from the ONS Internal Migration series documenting residential moves between local authorities and regions in England and Wales, as well as moves to or from Scotland and Northern Ireland, include:24pc of people who move between the ages of 16 and 19 relocate to either London, Leeds, Nottingham, Sheffield, Birmingham, or Manchester14pc of people who move in their 20s move to LondonFor those moving out of London in their 30s, Surrey, Hertfordshire, Essex, Kent, Hampshire are the top destinations.15pc of moves by Brits aged 30 – 39 are to either the Home Counties or ScotlandThe counties with the highest rates of net migration are Essex, Kent, Devon, East Sussex, and West Sussex – these areas in the UK saw a lot more people moving in than moving out. These counties are especially popular with ex-Londoners, who account for 30 per cent of people moving into these areas.At the other end of the scale, London, Birmingham, Bradford, and Manchester were the biggest losers when it came to internal migration, losing 68,634, 5,137 people, 3,336, and 3,076 people respectively.Those who left London tended to stay around the Home Counties, whereas former residents of Birmingham and Manchester were more likely to seek out suburban areas outside the city centre like Solihull and Trafford.The most common age amongst people who move within the UK is 19, likely due to relocating for further studies or university – there were nearly 150,000 people of this age who moved within the UK in 2014. The second most common age was 22 – about 120,000 people of this age moved around the UK in the same year.Women accounted for 52 per cent of everyone who moved within the UK in 2014. In particular, women were a lot more likely to move than men in their 20s and early 30s, This, however, changes after the age of 35, when men are more likely to change locations.Ben Wilson, Gocompare.com’s home insurance spokesperson said, “Cities with big universities continue to attract vast numbers of students and London has once again proved to be a top destination for graduates and professionals wanting to further their careers. While I don’t see that changing in the future, it’s encouraging to see so many people opting to relocate to smaller, up-and-coming areas across the UK in search for a place to call home.”Gocompare.com have visualised the analysis in a new interactive map which allows people to find out where people in the UK are moving to, which places people are leaving, and where they’re staying put.http://www.gocompare.com/home-insurance/no-place-like-homeGocompare.com new interactive map research June 16, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

AT&T expands mobile broadband coverage in the Mad River Valley

first_imgAs part of its continuing network investment to support growing demand for advanced mobile devices and applications, AT&T* today announced the activation of a new 3G cell site in Waitsfield serving nearby Fayston and the Mad River Glen ski area that will enhance coverage for area residents, tourists and businesses. With 3G speeds, AT&T customers can surf the Web, download files faster, and enjoy the very latest interactive mobile applications.This new cell site is one part of AT&T’s ongoing efforts to drive innovation and extend its 3G wireless network the fastest in the nation, according to independent testing. In December 2009, AT&T launched its 3G network in a number of Vermont cities and towns. These expansions are part of AT&T’s ongoing investment to build the broadband networks that will fuel economic growth and create jobs, and enable its customers to quickly access the content, applications and services that matter most to them. Additional 3G investments in Vermont will be announced later this year.”Our goal is pretty simple: we want you to have an extraordinary experience when you make a call, check e-mail, download a song or video, or surf the Internet on your AT&T device,” said Steve Krom, vice president and general manager, AT&T New England.. “As part of the Vermont community, we’re always looking for new opportunities to provide enhanced coverage and our investment in the local wireless network is just one way to accomplish this.”AT&T recently completed a software upgrade at 3G cell sites nationwide that prepares the nation’s fastest 3G network for even faster speeds. The deployment of High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) 7.2 technology is the first of multiple initiatives in AT&T’s network enhancement strategy designed to provide customers with and enhanced mobile broadband experience, both today and well into the future.  Faster 3G speeds are scheduled to become available in 2010 and 2011 on a market by market basis as AT&T combines the new technology with our second initiative to dramatically increase the number of high-speed backhaul connections to cell sites, primarily with fiber-optic connections, adding capacity from cell sites to the AT&T backbone network.AT&T’s 3G mobile broadband network is based on the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) family of technologies that includes GSM and UMTS, the most open and widely used wireless network platforms in the world.
