New study shows fiber-optic broadband access increases MDU value

A study commissioned by Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Council Americas shows availability of fiber-optic broadband access to individual apartments will increase rental and property values in multiple dwelling units (MDUs) by 8% and 2.8%. For those of you who have ever lived in areas where the technology is not prevalent, you can certainly understand how this increase in value is easily derived. "Today's findings add to the growing body of evidence that fiber is a win for communities, for consumers and for property owners," said FTTH Council President and CEO Heather Burnett Gold, "This study is another tool network providers can use in their discussions with MDU owners and operators as they seek to deploy fiber, meaning faster and more numerous deployments throughout North America."
