One managed Wi-Fi network. Endless possibilities.
Experience DISH Fiber: A managed Wi-Fi solution for multifamily communities that creates new revenue opportunities for owners while keeping resident rates low. One common network provides separate, secure, access for residents, guests, and staff while serving as the backbone for smart community upgrades and IoT devices. Learn about the advantages of moving your community to a managed network powered by DISH Fiber in the sections below.
Increase NOI. Keep resident rates low.
Most in the multifamily space are familiar with the
traditional revenue share model in which one or multiple
providers offer services to residents and in exchange, the
property receives a negotiated percentage of that revenue.
However, many savvy multifamily professionals have recognized
the opportunity to significantly increase revenue by
transitioning their communities over to a managed
Wi-Fi solution and offering high-speed connectivity as an amenity to residents.
With a managed solution, property owners are able to significantly decrease overall property costs for Wi-Fi through bulk pricing. This allows them to determine their own margins while offering residents a premium solution at a lower rate compared to individual market prices. As a result, the property earns more while residents pay less for higher quality service. Plus, the property realizes additional savings by leveraging the same network to support staff and property needs.
Deliver a top-of-the-line resident experience with DISH Fiber.
DISH Fiber provides a premium experience that residents can’t get with individual providers including instant access to private networks with enterprise-level security upon move-in, gig-enabled speeds, property-wide connectivity and 24 channels of live streaming TV. Even better, residents can seamlessly connect all of their own IoT devices with no need to search for MAC addresses or undergo complicated onboarding processes that are all too common with other managed Wi-Fi networks. DISH Fiber offers residents fast, secure, and reliable connectivity with no data caps — so bingers can binge, shoppers can shop, and gamers can game without ever skipping a beat. Learn about the additional benefits your residents can enjoy below.
Live Streaming TV Included
Offer residents a custom lineup of 24 popular DISH channels accessible property-wide on their own browser-enabled devices or through Amazon Fire TV, including live channels like ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN, Disney, and more. Residents can instantly enjoy access in-unit, at the pool, the gym, or other common areas.
No-hassle TV Upgrades
Residents can easily upgrade their TV entertainment with significantly reduced DISH programming packages (including America’s Top and DishLATINO) and equipment prices — no term commitment, credit check, or tech appointments (self-install available).
Connect your smart community.
A property-wide managed Wi-Fi network not only saves multifamily communities money by serving the connectivity needs of both residents and staff, but also serves as a backbone for smart communities. The DISH Fiber managed Wi-Fi network securely connects property-managed smart devices that help drive efficiencies like keyless access, leak detection tools and smart thermostats which can save properties from costly HVAC expenses and prevent future damage. Attract new residents with high-tech amenities such as smart lights, video doorbells, and security cameras to set your community apart, all utilizing one common secure network.
Five reasons to make the move to managed Wi-Fi today
1. It enhances the resident experience
Unlike traditional residential internet solutions, managed Wi-Fi is built for multifamily properties, which allows residents to easily access their secure personal network across the entire property. Fast, reliable Wi-Fi is instantly available at move-in, so residents don't have to wait multiple days for tech appointments. And with no data caps, residents can shop, surf, binge and game without buffering.
2. It increases your revenue opportunity
Property owners can contract for broadband at a property level on a bulk basis. For many, this means they can charge a technology or amenity fee to residents that is below market rates and still make more than they would in traditional revenue share from other providers. Alternatively, properties can include the cost in the residents’ rent to support higher rents or differentiate from the competition. In any case, the property is now able to directly monetize this valuable service for their residents.
3. It’s more reliable
Internet service is critical, which is why having specialized technical support with remote monitoring and redundancies built-in is a huge advantage of managed Wi-Fi. You’ll always have access to excellent 24/7 customer service, a dedicated account manager and a team of experts.
4. It provides enterprise-level security
In fact, managed Wi-Fi solutions like DISH Fiber take security to another level by providing unique encryption to the individual users. Not just for every resident, but for the employee network as well. DISH Fiber also includes enterprise-grade firewalls for every property.
5. It prepares your property for a smart future
A property-wide managed Wi-Fi network means you can streamline your common area network, employee network, IoT network, individual resident network and any other network access you may need. This eliminates the need for multiple networks at your property. The same solution can be used to securely connect property-managed smart devices, like leak detection tools and smart thermostats, with ease (which will also lead to money saved in the long run through things like HVAC expenses and damage prevention). Property owners can remotely manage many components in the unit and even rekey doors. It also means residents can easily connect their own in-unit smart devices like smart lights and speakers. The best part is that the solution used to connect these smart devices can be the same one providing exceptional internet access for your residents, staff and guests.
