The decision to provide internet to tenants is a tricky one often fraught with questions; is it worth the financial investment? What benefit could providing internet access have for you? Providing internet for tenants could encourage existing tenants to stay for multiple years but also make your property more appealing to prospective tenants.

A reliable, fast, and hassle-free internet connection is vital for students these days. Because a majority of university work has shifted to being based online Wi-Fi inclusion is a strong requirement, that is increasingly expected, from landlords today.

Why should you include Wi-Fi in your property?
