You know it’s a hot real estate market when Andy Choi tries to sell your house.

That’s exactly what happened on today’s Up To Speed, when Andy tried to convince Jess Bonardi to sell her home. While Jess wouldn’t mind getting some distance from her nosey neighbor (played by Matt Fiedler), she loves her home for many reasons, not the least of which is the fast and reliable internet connection.

This should come as no surprise. According to a new study conducted by Verizon and Morning Consult, 90% of home buyers prioritize fast and reliable home internet and good cellular service when looking for a home. In fact, the study also revealed that homebuyers rank quality internet connectivity ahead of school proximity, commute time and modern appliances.

Americans may disagree about a lot of things but not when it comes to connectivity. Nearly eight in ten American home buyers surveyed believe 5G home internet and access to a 5G cell network increased a home’s value.

The best part is that we have a fantastic new offer for new Fios customers. For a limited time, when you sign up for Fios Gigabit Connection, you get one year of Amazon Prime, plus a fourth generation Echo Dot all on us! Imagine getting Prime Video, Music, and Twitch Gaming on the fastest internet in America.

So if you know of anyone moving into a new home, be sure to let them know about this great deal. And if you see Andy trying to plant a “For Sale” sign in your front yard, know that he means well.
