Between 14th and 17th of May, VostroNet attended the StarRez APSAA (Australia-Pacific Student Accommodation Association) to discuss fast internet for student accommodation precincts. The Conference, held at the beautiful Marriott Surfers Paradise, saw representatives of the student housing industry gather to discuss all things student accommodation for 2018.
Delegates were able to experience four days of conference events, opening them up to valuable networking opportunities, professional development, international learnings and study tours.
For VostroNet, it was an opportunity to inform delegates on the updates within the telecommunications market and the importance of the high-speed internet to student accommodation precincts. Jonathon Runge, CEO of VostroNet believes that high-speed internet is a crucial offering for the industry stating, “Fast internet now ranks as one of the most, if not the most important features of student accommodation”.
“Students require higher-speeds, unlimited data, with no lock-in contracts”, he said.
The network provider provides speeds of up to 10,000 Mbps to buildings with 24/7 support servicing over 25,000+ connections. With the number of purpose-built student accommodation in Australia growing, the need for fast internet for student accommodation is becoming ever more important.
