Gigabit Ultra Reliable Full Fibre Broadband

In a world where going online has become the norm for everyone, expectations for reliable internet (especially in private rental homes) has increased rapidly and is now at the top of tenants’ priority list.  

A 2019 student survey found that a landlord providing internet access in their property meant that prospective tenants were 82% more likely to view.

Internet speeds are now a buyers top priority  

A recent study revealed that 71% of buyers would now reject their ‘ideal home’ if the available broadband didn’t meet the minimum requirements, whereas a further 22% said they would try and negotiate a lower price as high speed internet connectivity is an essential part of the renting decision making process. 

Gigabit boosts your property value 

Selling your home can bring many challenges your way, especially when it comes to your internet speeds. If you have fast speeds and rarely suffer with interruption when streaming, your house price is likely to be safe.  

However, if you do have slow internet, this might be something to consider sorting before selling your house, as a recent study showed that slow broadband could knock 20% off the value of your home.  

It’s not all doom and gloom – our Gigabit products can provide you and your property with ultrafast and ultra-reliable broadband that you can trust and depend on. Feel free to check out our tailored offerings here.

We can help you work from home  

Covid-19 has been a game-changer for businesses and the way employees are now working, which has now led to a new era of productivity and digital-inclusivity. 

Working from home can put a lot of pressure on your internet, especially if there’s more than one remote worker in the household, as it was revealed that 37% of properties have speeds that are significantly slower than what they actually need.   

Future-proof your invesment 

With the government now introducing new building regulations, it is mandatory for property developers to ensure that almost every new home is built with support for gigabit-capable broadband.  

This new law means that 3,000 extra residential buildings a year will be connected to gigabit speeds. 

So why not get a head start? At Gigabit Networks we offer a variety of products for any homes – at gigabit speeds, symmetrical bandwidth and around the clock technical support so you’ll never have to worry.  

Gigabit and cost-effectiveness goes hand in hand 

75% of buyers say that they would be more inclined to rent a property that had pre-installed internet access, and a further 88% said that fast internet was something that they specifically look for.  

Though broadband can require an upfront investment, Gigabit Networks can offer you affordable prices no matter how big or small your company is.
