Access to Optical Fiber Can Boost Home Values By Up To 3.1 Percent

The Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Council Americas recently released a white paper finding that access to optical fiber can help increase a home’s value by up to 3.1 percent. In this study, the authors researched the relationship between fiber-delivered Internet services and housing prices. Based on their analysis, the increase to the value of a typical home ($5,437) is roughly equal to the addition of a half bathroom or fireplace to the home.

OFS has been an active member of the FTTH Council since its founding in 2001.
