WiredScore, the company that prioneered a standardized rating system designed to identify, evaluate and certify commercial buildings with the fastest and most reliable internet connections, has expanded its Wired Certification service.
the company will now offfer certification to office property owners, asset managers and leasing agents in cities nationwide, including New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington, DC and San Francisco, among other metro areas.
Similar in concept to LEED certification for energy efficiency, WiredScore evaluates a building’s connectivity by examining the number and quality of internet service providers as well as the bandwidth capabilities and reliability of connections that are based on the building’s infrastructure. Buildings that meet WiredScore’s rigorous standards are awarded a coveted Wired Certification.
Launched in 2013 as WiredNYC by the Bloomberg Administration in partnership with New York City Economic Development Corp., WiredScore has since certified over 325 properties totaling over 155 million square feet of office space in 30 cities.
To date, information on the connectivity of over 700 buildings nationwide has been added to the WiredScore database, including buildings owned by SL Green, Brookfield and Empire State Realty Trust.
