In this digital era, Wi-Fi has become an important amenity. In fact, most tenants can’t even imagine living without it. As such, people who don’t have access to it in their places of residence are more than willing to rent it out from their neighbors.
This is a huge business opportunity for people with Wi-Fi access. Though it may seem complicated, renting out your apartment Wi-Fi is pretty easy. We are going to explain to you how you can do this in a few simple steps.
Ensure you have fast reliable internet access
Although it may be tempting to invest in the cheapest internet connection available, this will cost you valuable customers. For best results, you need to get the fastest internet connection you can afford. Therefore, you will need carry out extensive research on available Internet Service Providers.
You should also be keen to get an internet connection that allows for resale. This means that you will most likely need a business internet connection. Fortunately, there are different types of internet service. Here are some of them:
- Fiber: Provides very good speeds but can be expensive
- Leased line: Popular among many business owners due to its high internet speeds. It is very expensive as it comes with a pricey monthly fee
- ASDL: Uses old telephone wires and doesn’t offer very fast speeds. The farther away you are from the telephone exchange, the poorer your internet connection
