Benefits to the Owners Corporation and
Strata/Facilities Managers

Target Market

We look to rejuvenate Strata and Community Developments with slow Internet.

Pre 2014 Developments may have NBN FTTN, TPG FTTB or Telstra HFC – these technologies will be unable to guarantee speeds above 50Mbps or migrate to 1Gbps in the future.

Apartments may have 3 generations of families residing in them and therefore are data intensive users.

By 2020 it is expected that each resident will have 6 personal devices connected to WiFi, plus the Internet of Things (IOT) adding 50 devices per apartment.

Tangible Value

Research shows home owners are prepared to pay up to 8% more for properties with fast broadband.

Super fast broadband on average leads to a 5% rental improvement.

Plus investment properties on average acheive a 5% higher rental yield where super fast broadband is available.

To maintain and enhance their value, these buildings need to keep their technology infrastructure up to date.
