Lightning Broadband Making Its Queensland Debut

Non-NBN superfast internet connectivity provider Lightning Broadband is about to make its presence felt in Queensland.

After taking Melbourne by storm back in 2016, Lightning Broadband has cemented its position in its home state; becoming a leading provider of broadband services in new metropolitan apartment building developments. The company has also established projects in Western Australia, New South Wales and the ACT.

Queensland is about to join the list. Lightning Broadband announced last week it had signed a deal to provide superfast connectivity to 87 units over 11 levels at The Carl Residences in Brisbane; the construction of which is about to commence.

The Carl Residences - Lightning Broadband

The Carl Residences is located at 21-25 Carl Street, Woolloongabba. Comprising luxury 1, 2- and 3- bedroom apartments, the development boasts a wide range of local amenities, cafés, restaurants and shopping centres on its doorstep, easy access to the Princess Alexandra and Mater Hospital precinct and is just 3 kilometres from Brisbane's CBD.

Among the many features of the apartments will be spacious balconies, oversized bedrooms and top of the range appliances.

With superfast broadband moving from the wish list to "must have" for many apartment buyers and tenants, The Carl Residences' developers also have this requirement totally covered through including Lightning Broadband's infrastructure. Occupants will be able to choose from plans providing up to 1,000Mbps upload/download speeds and all offering unlimited data; with the service backed by stellar support.

A Developer's Dream Connectivity Solution

In addition to providing a superior internet experience for residents, The Carl's developers' choice of Lightning Broadband was accompanied by a very attractive bonus - zero cost setup; potentially saving hundreds of thousands of dollars on project costs compared to integrating an NBN solution.

"Choosing Lightning Broadband really is a winner for all stakeholders in apartment building projects," said Lightning Broadband CEO Jeremy Rich. "Our technology can also be integrated into existing buildings with minimal disruption, and again – at zero cost."

The company has successfully executed more than 50 apartment building projects to date. In terms of executed contracts and firm pipeline, the figure exceeds 100.

Apartment building developers and body corporates in Queensland - or anywhere else in Australia - interested in having a future project or established building supported by the nation’s fastest broadband system can contact the company here, or call 1300 596 426 for further details.
