Three reasons why a managed quality broadband service is a cost-effective and highly beneficial addition to your property
1. Quality broadband is feature Tenants look for and will make your property more attractive
Many tenants consider internet to be a ‘fourth utility’ after water, gas and electricity. This is due to the fact that most tenants are aged below 35. A demographic that has grown up using the internet and relying on it. In addition to this more people than ever are working from home, including students who require connectivity to complete assignments. A recent study of 500 25-30-year-old tenants, showed that 8 in 10 participants believe high-speed internet connectivity is an essential part of renting. And, according to UCAS, 70% of students were willing to pay a rental premium for fast Wi-Fi.
2. Broadband service will save you, the Landlord, time and money (Providing super-fast Wi-Fi is about to become a law)
If you can’t access an upload speed of 10MBps or a download speed of 1MBps, you have the right to request an upgrade. This shows the ever-growing importance of Wi-Fi in society. Here at Landlord Broadband, you get everything in one bill, you don’t have to worry about several bills. Our broadband is also a tax-deductible expense which means it’s actually cheaper than you think. In addition to this, if you manage multiple residences within a given area they can be grouped together on a secure, shared connection. This means you’ll only have one broadband set up to manage and one bill to pay for all those properties.
3. It reduces pain energy and late-night calls for both parties
According to accommodationforstudents.com, 75% of young UK professionals reported that they would be more inclined to rent a property that had pre-installed internet access. With us all they will need is a password, it’s as simple as that. We are aware that if you do provide the Wi-Fi there’s nothing worse than a tenant calling up at 3am to complain about it not working. That’s why we have a 24-hour service to sort out your pain problems so you don’t have to. Lastly, we provide super-fast reliable broadband, which leaves us happy, you happy and most importantly your tenants happy.
