A new housing estate in Sydney will be benefiting from high-speed internet connectivity as Lightning Broadband extends its reach into Leppington.
Leppington, approximately 38 kilometres south-west of Sydney’s CBD, is the site of a new 57-lot residential development situated at 36 Byron Road offering land and land/home packages. Leppington is a sought-after location, being close to M5 and M7 freeways, the new airport and train station; plus it’s within walking distance to a major shopping centre.
Purchasers of blocks and homes in the development will also get to enjoy really fast internet.
Nothing But The Best – FTTP Connections
In a project for developer Barakah Housing, Lightning Broadband is providing Fibre-To-The-Premises (FTTP) for purchasers of properties in the estate. FTTP is widely regarded as a superior fibre-based internet connectivity technology compared to Fibre-To-The-Node (FTTN), which can see the fibre line terminate up to hundreds of metres away from a home.
For the Leppington project, Lightning Broadband infrastructure is included with all properties purchased, covering the cabling up to the optical network terminal (ONT) installed inside a home.
For property owners, all they need to do is plug in a compatible router (one can be supplied), select from the broadband plans available offering speeds up to an incredible 500Mbps, call 1800-4-SPEED and they’ll be instantly connected.
Lightning Broadband’s services are also symmetrical, meaning the upload speed is the same as download rate. Additionally, there are no data caps with any of Lightning Broadband’s plans, so customers are free to stream, shop, communicate and create to their heart’s desire.
Zero Cost To Developer
Lightning Broadband’s technology is a great value-add for developers. In the case of a project such as Leppington, there are zero setup costs – the developer just needs to provide pit and pipe works and Lightning Broadband installs its hardware at no charge. The fibre is owned by Lightning Broadband and maintained at no cost.
The company’s services have already been used extensively in Melbourne, where dozens of apartment buildings have Fibre-To-The-Building (FTTB) services that are the envy of other developments. As with the Leppington project, apartment building developers outlay nothing for Lightning Broadband infrastructure and ongoing maintenance.
