Broadband Case Study - Ascent St. Kilda

Ascent St. Kilda in Melbourne, located at 101 St. Kilda Road, is situated on the highest point in the sought-after beachside suburb and offers stunning views. It also boasts incredibly fast internet connectivity.

Designed by leading architectural firm Bruce Henderson Architects, Ascent comprises 82 sophisticated open-plan one and two bedroom apartments. Great shopping, restaurants and cafes are practically on its doorstep and the development is an easy walk to iconic St. Kilda beach.

Ascent St Kilda - BroadbandAscent’s developer, Goal Property Group, is committed to providing the best to residents and selected Lightning Broadband as the primary Internet Service Provider (ISP) for the complex.

Zero Disruption, Zero Cost

Lightning Broadband carried out the provisioning work with zero disruption during construction and at zero cost to the developer. This is in stark contrast to the NBN, which can cost a developer up to $1,000 per apartment and involve significant disruption to building activities.

Lightning Broadband will also be responsible for all ongoing maintenance of the building’s network, including data cabling; again at zero cost to the developer and the owners corporation.

Simple Setup, Blistering Fast Connectivity For Building Residents And Beyond

Residents wanting to take advantage of the fastest residential internet in Australia once they move in to Ascent just plug in their compatible router or device into the Lightning Broadband enabled data wall socket in their apartments. They are then automatically provisioned to Lightning Broadband’s online platform.

After that, it’s just a matter of choosing a plan, completing a few details and then they are ready to experience the internet like never before; at speeds of up to 100 Mbps.

Lightning Broadband is providing Ascent St. Kilda residents with very reasonably priced, unlimited data broadband plans so they can surf, shop and create to their heart’s content.

A unique feature of the service is all plans are symmetrical; meaning residents enjoy the same super-fast upload speed as download rates.

Low contention is another important feature – Lightning Broadband provisions in way to ensure all residents experience the highest speed possible, all the time.

Additionally, other St. Kilda businesses and homes within line of sight of the building will also have access to Lightning Broadband’s services thanks to a tower installed on the building’s roof.

Phone Option, Free Access In Common Areas

Ascent St. Kilda residents can also take advantage of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone options through the service. All that’s required is an ATA enabled router connected to the data port and a simple dial tone phone plugged in.

An additional service provided by Lightning Broadband for residents is free internet access in common areas.

A Win-Win

“Simplicity, rapid deployment, ongoing maintenance and zero capital outlay are the cornerstones of what Lightning Broadband can offer apartment developers and body corporates,” says the company’s CEO, Jeremy Rich.

“For residents, they’ll reap the benefits of solid, lightning fast broadband at very competitive pricing – and never having to worry about data caps.”

Mr. Rich says prospective developers and body corporates are invited to arrange a mutually convenient time to visit Ascent St. Kilda to experience Lightning Broadband’s blistering speed.

Lightning Broadband is a win-win for developers, body corporates and residents alike. Like Ascent, your building could also be harnessing the power of Lightning Broadband’s services – contact us on 1300 596 426 or use our contact form to request further details.
