The times, they are a-changing. According to the National Multi-Family Housing Council, high-speed internet is important to 92% of today’s tenants, while 48% agree they wouldn’t rent an apartment without it.1 The popularity of mobile devices, social media, streaming content, video calls and distance learning are driving this trend for high-speed connectivity.  

Move-in ready internet is a sought-after amenity for renters of today’s world. Across generations, people rely on dependable Wi-Fi access to power their everyday lives. Whether they’re working remotely, watching favorite shows, gaming online – it’s clear that seamless internet connection is a necessity. 

Can your property keep up? It's a real question that many property owners are asking about their network technology infrastructure. Built-in Wi-Fi is in reach and can help set your property apart from the competition while lowering vacancy rates for years to come. Hello, happy renters!

Benefits of built-in Wi-Fi at your property.

Consumers today lead a multi-device lifestyle. They need a technology amenity tailored to fit it. As reported by MSN, tenants also prefer to connect easily without having to schedule an installation appointment when moving in.

A secure, wireless property solution with symmetrical upload and download speeds gives all the bandwidth they could ask for in their apartment or townhome – from day one. 

Wi-Fi fixed and fitted to each unit.

Internet is becoming a basic human need, right up there with electricity and clean water. Before new tenants even walks through the doors, get them set up with access to an internet. This way, they don't need to wait for an installation appointment to connect their devices to Wi-Fi. 

Keep in mind that every person or family unit is different. They will need a customizeable solution to choose the right speed to fit their unqiue needs. 

Midco Community Wi-Fi 360 comes with multiple speed options and upgrade opportunities. Residents can wirelessly connect devices via a ceiling- or wall-mounted access point in their unit, giving everyone in the property individualized bandwidth.3

Symmetrical speeds support tenants of today.

Tenants require fast-paced internet to keep up with their day-to-day lives. With symmetrical speeds, your residents will enjoy the same bandwidth for uploads and downloads in their apartment or townhouse. This is ideal for gamers and remote workers alike.

Public guest Wi-Fi throughout the property.

A big perk for tenants is having internet access across the entire property. Threading Wi-Fi throughout public spaces like the lobby, gym, or pool is another way we ramp up this appealing amenity – no matter where residents and guests are in the establishment.  

Endless entertainment with a TV package.

In addition to Wi-Fi as an amenity, TV services are another excellent perk. By packaging TV in their rent, you're able to provide yet another draw to stand out from competitors. Whether tenants want to watch the news, sports or home improvement shows, they can simply do so with a service already installed. 

Our Community Cable TV comes with multiple package options – which includes local and cable channels. Residents can upgrade and add-on from there with the digital equipment already in place.

Portal access for property managers.

With multiple tenants moving in or out, managing their services can get tricky to stay on top of. And, constantly reaching out to your provider when something changes takes up your valuable time.

A property manager portal makes it possible to control your network and streamline the move-in and move-out process. You can to set up and monitor accounts for tenants in a secure platform with ease.

With Midco Community Wi-Fi 360, property managers have exclusive access to a secure portal, Splash 360. From there, you can simply activate Midco services from the portal management options and services will be ready to go by move-in time.
