Socket recently participated in an international fiber to the home conference in Anaheim, CA, with the purpose of continuing to bring fiber Internet to Missouri that operates on the leading edge of fiber Internet technology.

Kurt Bruemmer, Socket’s director of business improvement and control, attended the three-day Fiber On Fire conference to share information with other top actors in the fiber Internet field.

The short answer: both will increase your home’s value by about $5000, according to a new study.

This isn’t new to us. We hear this all the time from real estate professionals, developers, contractors and even residents selling their homes. They all tell us they get more money out of a home when it has fiber high-speed Internet.

According to a recent study released by the Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Council, in conjunction with research partner RVA, fiber deployments grew by 13% in the United States in 2015. Nearly 3 million homes were passed with fiber this year, bringing the total amount to around 26 million - and nearly 50% of those homes are now directly connected to that fiber network.

Customers with fiber to the home connections, at any speed, report 50% higher satisfaction than those on cable and DSL networks. It's just another reason we're focused on getting fiber access to as many places in mid-Missouri as possible.
