Fiber Optic Utility brings faster and better Internet to Ammon by Ariel Schroeder, KIFI
National surveys show that having fiber optics installed in your homes increases its value over 3%.
For for a $75,000 home, it's going to typically increase the value of the home by over $4,000.
"This is because home buyers are getting smarter and they know that the Internet is very much like sewer and water. They want it, they know they are going to pay for it every month, and that matters to them what that monthly bill is. So they are motivated to try and find good connectivity at the lowest price possible," Patterson said.
