Then again, I earn a living online, so it isn't a just a luxury.
Not a luxury, but an amenity.
For you it's a necessity, for some a large yard, big garage wine cellar or some other recreational benefit makes it the right house, for you broadband frees up time/cash/choices to be recreational that makes it work, just like easy freeway access or mass transit sells other workers on a given location and home.
So now that widespread demand is there, builders and remodelers and eventually city planners will see broadband as, as much of a requirement as any other amenity.
