Charlotte Apartments in Dublin have been awarded a WiredScore Certified rating for their great connectivity offering
Charlotte Apartments has been awarded a WiredScore Certified ratings under the residential certification by WiredScore, the internationally recognised real estate rating scheme for digital connectivity.
The WiredScore rating reflects the building’s excellent connectivity offering. It demonstrates that your landlord has committed to future proofing the building and has invested in the underlying digital infrastructure. As a result, the apartments provide reliable, consistent connectivity, giving you a seamless digital experience. The building has also incorporated forward thinking technology into the building with features such as smart parcel management and a resident app allowing you to let guests into your room.
Research conducted by WiredScore shows that 92% of Irish homeowners and renters struggle with poor residential connectivity, and that a third of those surveyed would not have moved into their current home if that had been aware of the internet issues*. The research also found that homeowners and renters are paying an extra €78 for mobile data due to the poor fixed-line internet service in their home.
WiredScore Home empowers renters by giving them transparency and assurance. It helps landlords and developers to improve the digital connectivity of their properties, helping them to understand how to implement best in class digital infrastructure. The rating scheme helps landlords save time and money by reducing the risk of expensive retrofits in the future.
Launched in May 2019, WiredScore Home currently has over 17,000 homes committed to certification with the likes of Fizzy Living, Long Harbour, GreyStar, Argent, LaSalle, L&G, Patrizia and Round Hill Capital amongst a few. It is the first digital connectivity rating scheme for the Build to Rent market.
At the UK launch of WiredScore Home Rt Hon Jeremy Wright MP, the then Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport highlighted the importance of residential connectivity for the UK. He stated: “When it comes to building new homes, we need to make sure that digital connectivity is seen as just as essential as bricks and mortar. These are the foundations upon which a modern digital economy is built.”
WiredScore is the international scheme that rates and provides transparency on the infrastructure, connectivity and technological capacity of real estate. WiredScore was founded in New York in 2013 by leaders in real estate, technology and telecommunications, with an endorsement from Mayor Bloomberg to improve the city’s technology infrastructure and support its entrepreneurs who are driving technological advances and creating jobs.
Following success in the US, WiredScore launched in the United Kingdom in October 2015 after winning the Greater London Authority’s tender to be the official Mayor of London Digital Connectivity Rating Scheme. International demand for the digital connectivity rating system has since seen the company expand operations to France, Netherlands, Ireland, Germany, Australia and Canada. To date, over 600 million square feet of real estate has been certified globally.
Their first residential digital connectivity rating scheme WiredScore Home was launched in May 2019 by the Secretary of State for Digital Culture Media and Sport. There are currently over 10,000 homes committed to certification.
