We have rental units in both buildings. Each building contains 8+8 spacious 1 Bhk units.
All our tenants are college students.
While building both houses, I properly planned and did networking for both buildings.
While doing this, I didn’t plan on offering internet to all the tenants in our building.
But still, I did the network setup. Because in future we cannot do so.
On some random day, one of our tenants requested me to share our internet setup with him at a discounted rate… because taking a new connection for him costs a little more.
I immediately said OK to him.
As the network setup was already done before, I just needed to do some configuration and make a connection in my house.
I gave him.
He also started using it without any issues.
After observing my internet speed for a few days, I noticed no slow speed issues because of sharing the internet with one of our tenants. (I’m on 300Mbps Plan)
I asked his feedback, and his feedback was also good.
He was also getting full speed as I was getting in my home.
No speed drop, nothing.
After seeing this good response from him, I also announced it to a few other tenants.
Some took it… some said they would see it later.
Whenever I share my internet connection with our tenants building, I check my internet speed to see if it is decreasing any speed for them or us.
Speed is consistent. No major issues at all.
I shared our internet connection to 3+4 =7 connections with our tenants.
Which brings me monthly ₹3,300 every month. While I’m paying around ₹600 to our ISP.
Also, we are getting free internet as the internet cost is covered by our tenants itself 😃
Our Tenants are happy about getting a better deal on an internet connection, and I’m happy because I’m getting paid for doing nothing but sharing our internet connection.
It’s all possible because of a good network setup.
If you want the same setup as what I did to our house, you can get it here to do it the right way:
