NEW YORK CITY—When weighing a decision on space, the top two considerations are location and price. True or false? Only partly true. After location, the second most important factor in a tenant’s current space, according to a study by Radius Global Market Research and WiredScore, is the quality of Internet connectivity. When it comes to evaluating future space needs, connectivity takes pride of place, with price and location ranked second and third in priority.
