FTTH Council: Fiber-delivered Internet Boost Home Values

  • FTTH Council
WASHINGTON — The FTTH Council just released a study showing the positive correlation between home prices and fiber-delivered Internet, adding increased property value to the already long list of fiber's benefits.

  • Access to fiber adds 3.1 percent to the value of a home.

  • Access to fiber in your neighborhood raises the value of your home by 1.3 percent.

  • Being able to get speeds up to 1 Gbps boosts the value another 1.8 percent.

  • Put another way, that's an additional $5,437 for the national median home price of $175,000.


The Gigabit Effect
Homes where 1 Gbps is available have a transaction price of 7.1 percent more than similar homes where 25 Mbps or less is available.
