Melbourne-headquartered Lightning Broadband has secured a substantial funding facility to support its national rollout of high speed fibre internet to greenfield residential and commercial developments.
Privately-owned Lightning Broadband arrived on Australia’s internet connectivity scene in 2016, offering blistering fast unlimited data broadband without the need for an NBN connection.
The company has since become well-established in the Melbourne metropolitan area, where its Fibre-To-The-Premises (FTTP) services are used by thousands of residential and business customers.
The telco has already started to make its presence felt in other capital cities, including Perth and Sydney. Just recently, Lightning Broadband announced it will be FTTP based internet connectivity to all properties at a new housing estate in Sydney’s south-west suburbs.
Lightning Broadband’s solutions also offer significant value to developers as connectivity infrastructure is implemented and maintained at no incremental cost.
