We’re hearing it a lot these days – “new year, new you.” This
phrase comes into play with everything from dieting, self-care and hair color to
a new job. But what if it had to do with getting your house in shape? Like “new
year, new house?”
It’s not too far-fetched. Marie Kondo is making a name for
herself these days with
her show all about getting people to de-clutter their abodes. As far as
fitness goes, your house is getting more in shape – and more connected – than
you might realize.
Treadmills and stationary bikes are now equipped with
Bluetooth and wifi. You can “race” other people or plug into your home’s
streaming service while you run. Fitbits do the same thing. Furthermore, when
you cook your new healthy recipes, you can “talk” to your stove, which will tell
you the ingredients you need, at what heat level to cook and what to put on
your grocery list for next time.

It’s amazing how technology can help you achieve your goals.
The biggest enabler of cutting-edge technology in your home is your broadband
connectivity. Beyond today’s capabilities, service providers will need gigabit speeds
to support emerging and future applications. A whole host of solutions is
needed to achieve gigabit performance levels at home.
For example, hardened plug-and-play fiber connectivity
solutions make it quick and efficient to bring new service to homes, while
supporting the higher bandwidth residents demand. Installers need training and
expertise to be efficient in their work.
As we begin 2019, perhaps it’s time to resolve to make sure
our houses are “fit” to keep up with the demand we know is coming. As one
person once told me, no one is saying they wish their TV downloaded a show a
little slower. It’s all about speed and being ready for what’s next – like a
Marie Kondo robot that will do all that de-cluttering for you. Wouldn’t that be
