Did you know that by installing only one broadband cable, you could instantly add over £3,500 to your home. Sound good? Wait until you hear how easy it is…
In recent years the government has advised all property owners to start taking action towards connecting their homes and businesses to Full Fibre. The increasing availability of Full Fibre across the UK has had a profound impact on property values, meaning those who don’t jump on the bandwagon could risk missing out on ££££s.
Let’s take a closer look at how Full Fibre can increase your property value…
Does Full Fibre really add value?
Whether you’re selling up, letting out or future proofing your home, it’s important to make sure you’re getting the most out of your property and maximising your return on investment.
While homeowners typically focus on giving the walls a fresh lick of paint, tidying up the dreaded garden/jungle, loft conversions or kitchen upgrades – there’s one big-impact upgrade that tends to slip the net. Upgrading the property broadband connection could make a big difference to your listing price or monthly rental rate.
During the pandemic, when most of us were stuck at home, the importance of having a dependable and speedy broadband connection really hit home. Since then, according to the 2023 ONS, a huge 44% of UK workers are still either fully or partially remote.
So, does Full Fibre really add value? The answer is yes!
How else could I benefit from Full Fibre?
In today’s digital climate, high-speed internet has become a necessity rather than a luxury. Remote work, online education, and a growing demand for streaming and gaming has made fast, reliable internet crucial.
In a typical household, you will find a range different broadband users – Home working warriors, stream-aholics, avid gamers and music enthusiasts.
So, to keep every user happy, you’re going to need the right type of connection to do the job. The best way to ensure a high speed and uninterrupted connection is to get a dedicated fibre-optic cable direct to the property, that isn’t shared between you and your neighbours (like ours!). This means, no matter what, reliability is guaranteed.
What really is Full Fibre?
We’re not talking about your five a day here… We’re talking about some serious, next-level broadband.
Fibre-optic is essentially strands of optically pure glass that transmit data as pulses at the speed of light – literally lightning fast!
How does this differ from other broadband on the market? Here’s a quick breakdown:
Exchange-only-line or EOL – This is a copper system that transmits data through electrical signals, resulting in slower speeds and higher lag. These are often older lines that were installed before fibre-optic technology became widespread.
Fibre-to-the-Cabinet or FTTC – Although fibre-optic is used between the data centre and the street cabinet, this network relies on traditional copper for the last-mile connection – drastically slowing speeds!
Fibre-to-the-Premises or FTTP – Lastly, we’ve got FTTP, otherwise known as FTTH, FTTB, or simply Full Fibre. This network uses fibre-optic cable, direct from the data centre to the home – meaning lightning-fast speeds and reliability.
