More Melbourne Apartment Developments Signing On To Better Broadband

Melbourne-headquartered Lightning Broadband has added another three significant apartment development projects to its rapidly growing portfolio.

Lightning Broadband - Melbourne apartment projects

The recent additions are:

  • MontVue – 87 Mount Street, Heidelberg, Victoria – 6 floors, 53 residences – one, two, and three-bedroom apartments.
  • Patch – 243 Queens Parade, Fitzroy North, Victoria - 83 residential apartments + 1 commercial premises.
  • LINC – 15 Russell Street, Essendon  – 99 apartments across 9 floors.

Infrastructure is in place for residents and tenants to easily access Lightning Broadband's services and start cruising the web at breakneck speeds of up to 500Mbps - and that's the upload rate as well as download.

"With superfast connectivity rapidly becoming an essential service, residents and tenants in Lightning Broadband enabled buildings can kick off their residencies with the zippiest broadband around - and there are no data caps," said Lightning Broadband CEO, Jeremy Rich.

"Building owners only offering NBN services to residents and tenants are really putting themselves at a disadvantage nowadays - both in terms of making their buildings stand out from the pack and their hip-pockets".

Zero Setup Costs For Developers

It can cost developers up to $1,000 per apartment for NBN setup, plus any applicable additional fibre backhaul charges to pull the fibre into the site - this can range from zero upwards to hundreds of thousands of dollars. All this extra cost still doesn't provide a market-leading product, with the highest speeds available to residents being well below what Lightning Broadband can offer.

Additionally, Lightning Broadband charges nothing for implementing the required infrastructure to establish its Fibre-To-The-Building (FTTB) apartment solution; whether it's retrofitting an existing building or a new development. Installation of Lightning Broadband's services also involves minimal disruption to construction activities or to residents in the case of building retrofits.

To date, the company has 26 completed apartment building projects in its portfolio - and  plenty more in its pipeline. Lightning Broadband is spreading its wings, moving beyond its home city of Melbourne to Geelong, Perth and Sydney this year; with its sights set on Brisbane for 2020.
