Home Telecom Partnership Gives Local Real Estate Agents a Free New Tool

MONCKS CORNER August 23, 2022 — Home Telecom has partnered with Fiber Homes, the nation's first fiber internet search service, to give local realtors and brokers access to detailed fiber internet availability using their free, user-friendly Fiber Homes Tool.  

With reliable internet as a necessity to life these days, internet accessibility, speed and reliability are becoming major factors in buying and selling a home.  

The Fiber Homes Tool makes it easier for real estate agents to search for “certified fiber homes”. For instance, if a buyer works from home, the internet service they receive will most likely be very important to them. The real estate agent could input all the house addresses that the client is considering so they know which would have the connectivity to support their lifestyle before they decide which house to bid on.  

Having access to Fiber means that you can become GigUP Certified. GigUP certification is currently the gold standard of broadband service because it means you can get Gigabit speeds plus whole-home Wi-Fi 6 coverage. Not to mention, the added benefit of security to all your connected devices - an ongoing challenge for online technology. 

There is a lot of synergy between Home Telecom’s move toward gig certifications and Fiber Homes’ development of platforms to help customers find homes and communities with reliable fiber internet.   

"As the internet continues to be a necessity of life with people needing it for telework, telehealth, school, basic communication and entertainment, reliability has become as important as accessibility,” said Home Telecom President and CEO William Helmly. “Whether fiber infrastructure is in place within a residential development is now as important when buying as the number of bedrooms the home has because it will affect your quality of life.”  

Helmly continues, “Access to multi-gig internet, all the tools that come with it, and our GigUp certifications are major selling points for realtors as well as homebuyers.”
