Hundreds more apartment residents and tenants can now enjoy superior internet connectivity as developers increasingly turn to Lightning Broadband for in-building broadband infrastructure.
The most recent additions to the Melbourne-headquartered company's apartment building broadband portfolio are:
- Aurra – Caulfield North, VIC - 14 premises
- Habitat – Abbotsford, VIC - 38 premises
- G1 Apartments – Geelong, VIC - 110 premises
- Railway 23 – Subiaco, WA - 14 commercial premises and 6 apartments.
- Windsor Terrace – Windsor, VIC - 68 apartments
Residents and tenants of these buildings can take advantage of plans offering incredibly fast speeds of up to 500Mbps upload and 500Mbps download rates. While the greater the speeds users have access to the more data they'll tend to chew through, Lightning Broadband has this covered as all its plans including unlimited data.
The five recent projects join dozens of others already in Lightning Broadband's apartment building portfolio. Currently, more than 2,000 apartments across the Melbourne and Geelong metropolitan areas are Lightning Broadband activated and the company is in the process of taking its services to developers in other states. Other buildings to be brought online in Melbourne soon include developments in Caulfield North, Brighton, Elwood, Cheltenham and Ringwood.
Better Broadband With Zero Outlay For Developers
When it comes to adding real value to an apartment development at minimal cost, it probably doesn't get any better than Lightning Broadband.
Melbourne has a highly competitive apartment market and with speedy, reliable internet connectivity a must-have these days, offering residents and tenants truly superfast internet access can be an important differentiator. Another very attractive aspect of Lightning Broadband's Fibre-To-The-Building (FTTB) solution is it costs developers and body corporates absolutely nothing for setup and ongoing maintenance.
"It can cost developers up to $1,000 per apartment for setup from other providers, and residents still won't end up with a service comparable to Lightning Broadband's capabilities," says CEO Jeremy Rich. "Added to that cost can be additional fibre backhaul charges reaching hundreds of thousands of dollars. Apartment developers using our service totally bypass both these potentially hefty expenses."
Once a building is Lightning Broadband enabled, it's just a matter of residents plugging a compatible router into the provided wall socket, selecting a plan and then they're ready to go.
Lightning Broadband isn't just for new developments as its infrastructure can be retrofitted to existing buildings with minimum disruption to residents and tenants.
