Can I Get Fiber Internet in My Apartment or Commercial Building?

Connexion was established to usher the city of Fort Collins into the future via access to affordable fiber optic technology. Not just for homes in the suburbs and local storefronts, but for multiple dwelling units (MDUs) like apartment and commercial buildings.

To answer the question at hand – yes. You can get fiber internet in your apartment or commercial building.

Connexion’s fiber optic infrastructure has been established throughout the city of Fort Collins and is available for every home, building, and business within city limits. Additionally, our infrastructure provides redundant service. This means freedom from interrupted service. With geo-diverse fiber lines running throughout the city, should repairs be required along one path, your connection will be maintained along another.

Whether you live in, work out of, or own an MDU, and whether it’s located downtown, near the university, or in more suburban areas, bringing Connexion’s fiber internet to your building offers a myriad of benefits.

The Benefits of Bringing Fiber to Your Building

By providing fiber optic internet for your tenants, you can not only attract more people to rent out space in your building, but also increase the value of your property over time. Plus, installation of Connexion’s fiber internet is a quick and distraction-free process.

Attract and Retain Tenants

In the digital world of today, having a reliable and fast internet connection is essential. By offering fiber optic internet to your tenants, you’ll stand out from the competition and make your building more attractive to those looking for a place to live or work.

Fiber offers superior bandwidth compared to traditional cable or DSL connections, so your tenants won’t have to worry about data caps or bottlenecking when they need it most. And with the speed and reliability that comes with fiber optic technology, they can save time in their day-to-day online activities. 

By providing this service, you can ensure that your tenants have the best possible experience with access to the internet speeds they need.

Increase Your Property’s Value

Of all the amenities you offer your tenants, perhaps none of them are as valuable as access to fiber internet. By bringing Connexion’s fiber internet to your commercial or apartment building, you can charge higher rates for a more valuable space.

In bringing in more revenue, of course, the sky’s the limit. You can put that money back into your building, further increasing its value, set it aside in a tax fund, and reap a greater return on investment should you ever decide to sell the building. The increased property value gained from fiber isn’t just beneficial for your tenants – it’s beneficial for you.

Quick and Easy Installation

Acquiring the increased value of fiber for your apartment or commercial building is a quick and distraction-free process. Thanks to our expert technicians and the advanced nature of fiber optic technology, the installation process is less time-consuming and expensive than alternatives.

Plus, your building is likely already partially set up for installation. Many buildings have the conduit necessary to run fiber cables throughout built-in during construction. What does that mean? More savings and less headache for you.

How to Get Connexion for Your Building 

Getting Connexion’s fiber optic internet service for your building is simple. We’ve worked hard to build the infrastructure necessary for making fiber available for our whole city. All you have to do is let us in.

Upon signing a “Right of Entry agreement” (ROE), Connexion can bring fiber from the street to your space. Once signed, Connexion technicians develop a plan to bring our fiber and service to your building. Interested tenants can then sign up for Connexion gigabit service when they’re ready.

Pro Tip: Make sure Connexion has an understanding of your property (comms closets, number of units, sprinklers, etc.) – this can speed things up and ensure our design best serves your tenants.

As we wrap up our “Main Build” our focus will be on working through these commercial and residential MDU properties, and there are many interested property owners already in the queue. We anticipate work to begin 6-8 months after receiving a signed ROE. Your best bet? Start a conversation with us today and get your name on that list.

How to Get Connexion for Your Apartment

By now we’ve made it clear that you can get fiber internet in your apartment. However, that depends on your apartment building owner establishing a relationship with an ISP that provides a fiber connection. An article written by Forbes offers this advice:

“If you’re not interested in the apartment building’s chosen ISP, you have few other options. Residents may group to lobby the management to add additional ISPs or change ISPs. Individual renters may speak to the apartment owner about bringing in their own ISP.”

What if your apartment owner gives you the go-ahead to bring Connexion’s fiber internet to your apartment? What will that look like?

This is tricky. To gain access to your apartment, we’ll have to cross neighboring or adjoined apartments which in turn requires consent from that tenant. To avoid this hurdle, we try and ensure the delivery of our services has the whole building in mind. This doesn’t mean it can’t be done. 

Ultimately, specific circumstances like this will be reviewed by our team as they arise. In the meantime, start planting the seed with your building owner now.

With Connexion, You Can Get Fiber in Your Apartment

Fiber optic internet has become an essential amenity for both tenants and apartment owners alike. With its superior bandwidth, speed, and reliability, fiber can help you attract more high-value tenants while increasing your property value at the same time.

The installation process is relatively quick and easy with our expert technicians on hand to guide the way. So if you’re looking to bring Connexion’s fiber internet service into your building or apartment, don’t hesitate – contact us today! We’ll work together to develop a plan that meets all your needs and ensures everyone in your space gets access to the best possible internet speeds available.
