Managed Wi-Fi Provider for Condominiums in Florida

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.

South Florida Chooses Fiber Optic Internet

Across South Florida, more condominium associations and property management organizations are choosing to install fiber optic internet, and many of them see a managed Wi-Fi provider as the best solution for unit owners and their guests, especially in areas such as Fort Lauderdale. Fiber optic cables are the best means for providing internet access these days because they can handle high download speeds which will work with their streaming services, such as video conferencing, online gaming, and security cameras, these are just some of the many modern internet functions of today’s generation.

A managed broadband Wi-Fi network can truly boost the value of residential properties, and this is one of the services that  QXC, a Fort Lauderdale fiber network provider that can provide the service you need when it comes to condos that have a HOA. Having cable internet installed is not a solution it is no longer sufficient. It can not meet the demands of modern condo tenants, particularly those who want to enable smart home automation in their units. Condo buyers are willing to pay premium prices in order to enjoy the convenience of moving in and connecting to existing Wi-Fi networks, but they also do not want to run into connectivity issues such as not being able to make Skype calls or streaming because the network cannot handle the load.

Fiber-to-the-Home, Condo, or Office For Awesome Internet

Fiber is the future.  Regardless if you are a business or residential Internet surfer, you need to upgrade to the fiber-optic Internet global backbone. Send information at the speed of light.  

Fiber Optic Awesome InternetThe Fastest Speeds

We all use the Internet, but not every user knows how wires cross and connect. When you sign a contract, wouldn’t you rather know what details go into the unlimited plan? At QXC, we know how to provide the best Internet, and at the highest quality for your residence. 

How does the Internet work in your home? In industry-speak, the “last mile” is the physical connection from your building or home’s telecom connection point to your Internet Service Provider’s regional Point of Presence (PoP). The connection point is also called the demarcation point or demarc. 

The ISPs funnel all their customers’ data to and from the Internet. Don’t worry; the ISPs work to keep your information confidential! 

Large capacity fiber-optic links handle the load. They can handle vast amounts of data to avoid crashed servers. Likewise, the “last meter” is the connection between you and your demarc.  

AT&T and Comcast had network wires deployed across the country long before the Internet entered the 1990s mainstream. They prepared ahead of time on learning how people would use this digital frontier. 

These networks were designed, built and optimized for different purposes. That way, they could coexist without competing all the time. AT&T’s network was obviously designed for telephone service. Comcast and other cable companies were designed for TV broadcasts to compete with over the air TV stations and networks. Oligopolies ensued so that several larger corporations dominated the market. 

Both of these legacy systems were retrofitted in the 1990s and 2000s to offer Internet access. Alternatives to AOL and Internet Explorer appeared. As is the case with most retrofitted technologies or uses of technology, they were cheap and readily available. 

As a tradeoff, the Quality of Service (QoS) was and will continue to be spotty.  These legacy companies have hundreds of billions of dollars invested in existing legacy network technology. Because of that, they cannot convert all customers to fiber-based network connectivity.  

Suppose AT&T or Comcast says they will pull fiber to your building. Most often they will use the existing last meter cabling. You can do better. Why should you settle for last meter technology that was invented in the 1880s? 

No, that is not a typo. Alexander Graham Bell patented phone wire in 1881, and Oliver Heaviside patented coaxial cable the year before in 1880. That was 30 years before the first Model-T Ford rolled off the assembly line in Detroit. 

Yes, phone and cable technologies are that old! Companies should upgrade their technology. We have moved past those times.

QXC Communications is a network engineering firm at its core.  We design, deploy and manage pure Ethernet, the modern-day language of the Internet; network connectivity via fiber-optic; Ethernet cabling (Cat5e and Cat6); and microwave forms of connectivity.  QXC does not have legacy technologies to maintain. Everything is designed, deployed and optimized for present and future Internet connectivity.  

Another differentiation is that QXC will pull fiber to the home, condo or business, no duct-tape or paperclip connections!  QXC is also a prime telecom provider to Federal, Military and White House customers as well.  

QXC does not have billions of dollars invested in legacy technologies that we need to support. As a result, our pricing typically is at or below the incumbent providers. That means you can get the best technology that is designed, deployed and optimized for your usage. QXC is also more secure and stable and typically more cost-effective.
