Many residents of Geelong in Victoria have been wondering when Lightning Broadband will be available in their city. The good news is the company will have its first Geelong presence in the next 12 months.
Lightning Broadband’s initial foray into the Geelong market is by way of the high-profile G1 residential development. Located at 148 Bellerine Street, the $33M G1 project involves the construction of 110 apartments across 7 levels and a 3,600m2 basement. The G1 development is close to Geelong’s CBD, Market Square, a Westfield shopping center and many other amenities, making it a much sought-after location.
It’s expected that residents will start occupying the modern and luxuriously appointed apartments late next year. When they do, they can also look forward to benefiting from super-fast internet connectivity, as Melbourne-based Lightning Broadband was selected as the building’s preferred internet service provider.
Broadband Beyond The G1 Building
As well as providing unlimited data internet access plans boasting various speed levels up to 500 Mbps to G1 residents, the top of the building will also host a Lightning Broadband tower.
This tower will beam connectivity to a 5km line-of-sight radius; meaning many other residents and businesses within the coverage area will be able to take advantage of the company’s services.
“We’re really excited about the G1 project,” says Lightning Broadband CEO, Jeremy Rich. “And we’re just as excited about our future in Geelong. Our team is champing at the bit to get started on delivering superb fixed wireless and fibre broadband services to residents of this great city.”
Geelong residents and businesses can expect to see other Lightning Broadband towers popping up around the city in the not-too-distant future, with multiple apartment building projects similar in nature to G1 in the company’s pipeline. To be notified of service availability, Geelong residents are encouraged to register their interest.
G1 will join more than a dozen projects in Lightning Broadband’s apartment building portfolio, most of which are in Melbourne.
