Broadband for new build properties

Superfast Wi-Fi can cost just as much as utility bills in this day and age. It can also add to the stress of keeping track of your bills. Here at Landlord Broadband, we aim to give you fast, hassle-free managed broadband in order to ensure reliable rental Wi-Fi and create a simpler service for you and future residents.

Landlord Broadband has been installing and managing broadband since 2014 and has the experience to deliver the connection your property requires. We work with property developers across the UK in order to design and install high-performance Wi-Fi. This allows us to provide great managed Wi-Fi to tenants in build to rent homes and refurbished housing. Our involvement in the project design stage enables customers to specify the Wi-Fi plan in finished buildings.

3 reasons why you should provide Wi-Fi for tenants

Appealing to the future generation

When looking for a property to rent, 90% of tenants say that having Wi-Fi included in the rent is an important factor. In today’s society, digital inclusion is becoming increasingly important as channel shift takes over – this means that tenants need online access.

Providing free rental Wi-Fi to tenants makes more sense every day. Deloitte’s study shows that around 35% of the UK workforce is made up of millennials – a figure which is estimated to rise to 75% globally by the year 2025. As social norms are moving to a new online presence, many job roles follow suit. This has been further emphasised by the pandemic leading to a sharp rise in both working and studying from home.

Providing high-quality accommodation

Including Wi-Fi installations in your rented property will help your tenants avoid poor rental Wi-Fi services. When tenants provide their own Wi-Fi they place the router where they think is best. However, most of the time the placement is troublesome. The placement can cause trouble for the tenants due to the chance of interference for themselves and fellow tenants. By providing the Wi-Fi installation yourself you will be able to ensure that the placement of the router is the best for Wi-Fi coverage all over the property.

Creating a more attractive property

Including Wi-Fi within the rent for your property will help you stand out from the competition. As 81% of people use Wi-Fi every day it is important that they have a constant, reliable online access. Following on from points made earlier, having Wi-Fi will make your property more attractive to the future generation.

As millennials are becoming the main target market, considering their needs becomes a must-do. According to a 2018 tenant survey by LSL Property Services plc 39% of tenants are willing to pay more for additional services. On top of this, 31% are willing to pay extra for high-speed internet.
