In July 2019, a financial news outlet CNBC published a story about a former IT consultant who found his true calling as a condo landlord and property manager. Aaron McDaniel made the decision to switch careers after listing a spare bedroom of his Hawaii condo on Airbnb, netting thousands of dollars in the first year and alleviating his monthly mortgage payment burden. Eventually, McDaniel purchased a second condo unit that he also listed on Airbnb, thus increasing his profits and prompting him to become a full-time property manager.
McDaniel explained to CNBC that Airbnb reviews were one of the keys to his success, particularly with regard to the quality Wi-Fi service that his guests enjoyed. When looking for places to stay, Airbnb users pay close attention to Wi-Fi reviews; they will compare listed units in the same condominium tower, and they will gravitate towards those that are positively reviewed in terms of wireless internet service. As a former IT professional, McDaniel knows about the importance of internet speeds and quality of service, and he has chosen fiber optic cables to network his condos; moreover, he put his IT skills to work by closely monitoring and managing the Wi-Fi networks used by his guests.
Along with Airbnb guests, prospective condo buyers and renters also make a solid internet connection one of their priorities when searching for properties; in fact, some house hunters are known to inquire about the fiber network provider providing service to towers or apartment complexes. In the past, prospective condo buyers and tenants may have paid closer attention to restrictions on cable television providers; they wanted to know if they could install satellite dishes or if they could get good reception with antennas. These days, they want to know if the building was wired by a commercial fiber network provider because they want to access their Netflix accounts so that they can stream their favorite shows at high resolutions.
