Astral Apartments, St. Kilda - Retrofit Case Study

157 Fitzroy Street

St. Kilda, VIC



Located in the heart of St Kilda, Astral Apartments is situated just across from Albert Park Lake and is close to the beach and Chapel Street Precinct.

There's fantastic array of eateries close by (including in the building) and public transport access on the building's doorstep for those who want to venture further or need to commute to work.

Astral Apartments has it all, including super-fast and super reliable internet connectivity resulting from a retrofit project carried out by Lightning Broadband in 2021.

Building owner Paul Yates describes his Lightning Broadband experience:

"With the relaunch of our building, "Astral Apartments" in Fitzroy Street St Kilda, it was imperative that we could offer the highest quality internet to our occupiers.

With a mixed-use building comprising restaurants, offices and some 95 apartments, we needed a service that would meet everyone's needs."



“We looked at multiple options with a variety of delivery systems and nothing came close to Lightning Broadband.

Lightning Broadband offered a quality product combined with flexibility and a personalised service.

The installation team were also great to work with and completed all works in a co-operative and practical approach.”


"We have now been using Lightning Broadband for 12 months and their team is very responsive and proactively manages the network to ensure it meets our needs," says Mr. Yates.

"The speeds are consistently delivered with a robust high-quality connection. The service is significantly better than anything we have used before.

Our building managers work with the Lightning Broadband team on a weekly basis and find them very responsive to handle the multitude of changes that occur within the building. We would highly recommend Lightning Broadband for your internet needs."

Whether it's a new development or a retrofit, partner with Lightning Broadband and provision your building with a best-in-class network and end-user experience delivering  speeds up to 1,000 Mbps download and upload.
