CableCom Networking, a Bristol-based internet service provider, is launching a new digital inclusion service for housing providers, comprising broadband access alongside a range of landlord and tenant services.
The LivingCom service gives tenants fast, affordable and fully supported internet access with no hidden costs and a range of optional media and communication services such as television options, online movies, file backup and web security. For housing providers, CableCom said that LivingCom helps them to improve tenant communications, increase incremental revenues and reduce the number of ‘walk in’ offices and locations.
As well as providing services to Thames Valley Housing, Cosmopolitan Homes and Viridian Housing, CableCom is already well established in the student accommodation market and delivers broadband, television, telephony and other internet services to 200,000 students across 600 sites.
A spokesperson for CableCom said, “We work with the housing provider to provide the best price for the end user and the housing provider will make varying contributions based on their knowledge of existing tenants and potential price points. For example, in many instances the landlord will include a base service within the cost of the rent.”
