Today Dish reported its new Dish Fiber home internet service for multifamily networks like apartments. With this move apartment proprietors can offer high-speed fiber internet from Dish and live TV streaming over Dish’s fiber service utilizing a Dish Smartbox.
“The decision of choosing an internet and TV provider has historically been left to residents, which is more complicated and time-consuming for the consumer, and limits property owners’ revenue opportunity,” said Brian Neylon, group president of DISH TV. “By eliminating the common pain points often associated with competing providers, DISH Fiber provides residents with the services they want in one solution, while giving property owners more ways to monetize their highly-valued amenities.”
“The importance of high-speed internet services among apartment residents is undeniable and demands that property owners carefully consider how they implement this service,” said Alistair Chatwin, vice president of DISHBusiness. “With DISH Fiber, property owners can provide an excellent resident experience by giving them immediate access to all of the online and TV content they want when they move in, without having to schedule time off of work or school for complicated installations.”
Dish’s streaming TV packages on its fiber network will begin at $25 a month and incorporate access to pay-per-view alongside live and recorded programming on-the-go from the DISH Anywhere app.
