Home buyers and sellers are seeing firsthand how having a fiber internet connection can make their homes more desirable. On average, fiber adds 3.1 percent to a home’s value. That’s just for having a fiber-optic line wired to the house.

The reason? Because with a fiber connection, you have virtually limitless access to the internet, with lightning speed and freeway-wide bandwidth for streaming entertainment, real-time gaming, video conferencing and more.

Recently, we shared tips on how fiber can help you eliminate the stress of working and learning from home. Here are three essential ways fiber benefits home buyers.

Home management
Today, there are an estimated 30 billion smart-home devices in use, and each of them is connected to a home network. Fiber internet gives you more than enough bandwidth to support your smart-home ecosystem.

Check fiber availability in your neighborhood.

Entertainment
A symmetrical fiber connection is essential for online gaming—it doesn’t matter how fast your internet downloads data if it takes forever to upload data back to the server. And having the bandwidth to stream music and movies to smart TVs, tablets, laptops and mobile devices, all at once, is more important than ever.

Staying connected
If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it’s how to adjust to new ways of staying connected. Many in-person meetings and reunions have been replaced (at least temporarily) by Zoom and Skype video conferences and FaceTime. Fiber internet ensures your internet stays strong, with symmetrical speeds that help you communicate in real time, so you can stay in touch.

If you’re looking to buy a house, you should be looking at homes that have a fiber connection.​ Learn more about what fiber internet can do for your home here.
