Wi-Fi and superfast fibre internet connectivity is now seen as a utility by the majority of potential incoming clients, the same as heating, lighting and running water but with two very important differences.
Firstly, the requirement for bandwidth will continue to grow and grow. The average superfast fibre connection size that we provide to clients’ sites has grown from 10MB to 1GB over the past five years – a hundred-fold increase – and we are now regularly quoting customers with 10GB connections to future-proof their buildings. So, you will need the flexibility to increase your connection near instantly.
Secondly, whilst it is seen as a given by clients it is one that they are prepared to pay for. Our friends over at Wiredscore (who certify buildings on their digital infrastructure and help landlords improve their offer) report that buildings with their certification in the US command 7% higher rent for each rating band achieved, from standard certification through to platinum.
