Why Opt For High Speed Internet Access (HSIA)?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how heavily do you rely on internet access? With employees recently being introduced to a “work from home lifestyle,” studies have noticed a major increase in the usage of the internet. From video conferencing to working online and utilizing the internet for “out of the office” necessities like shopping and streaming movies, these activities have become a staple to residential living. 

In fact, 40% of MDU renters in broadband households are interested in bulk broadband internet bundled with their rent and even 77% of those interested are willing to pay higher rent for the service (Parks Associates,) that’s how necessary the internet has become since last year.

As a property owner, it is essential to understand the main reasons why you should opt for HSIA…

Managed HSIA Can Be Delayed To Support A Range Of Network Needs 

  1. A property-wide resident network 
  2. A private network for MDU staff
  3. A property-wide guest network
  4. A network to connect MDU controlled ioT devices or smart apartment deployments 

Fulfill The Residents Requests, Especially Millennials 

For luxury properties in particular, managed HSIA is becoming an expectation as residents come to demand residences that keep up with their connected lifestyles. Especially millennials who, according to BroadBand Communities, are propelling a major rental market increase. Though many are saddled with student loan debt and make every attempt to live economically after college, they were raised in the internet age and can’t imagine life without high-speed broadband.

Superior Cost/ Benefit Ratio

Building on managed HSIA services, property owners have an opportunity to offer community-wide WiFi that is available upon move-in for residents and allows seamless Wifi coverage across the community. Thus, noticing a cost/benefit ratio in the long-run. 

MDU Owners Are More Marketable

Apartment communities that cater to this population should be fiber internet capable. Being able to say a building is “fiber connected” is a valuable marketing tool that can make an apartment building stand out.

Ability To Outsource Network Installation 

Of course, most property owners have no desire to become experts in network installation or get into the tech support business. Which is why Powers ioT of Long Island recommends outsourcing these – and still remain in control of the service delivered to residents – by working with a strong team that provides complete, turnkey solutions and even retrofit buildings with modern wiring and/or Wi-Fi options if needed.
Focusing on design, installation and support Powers ioT of Long Island is available to assist you with your MDU needs. Our team will represent its best practices to ensure you, as a client, are satisfied after job completion. Learn more today.
