Just like access to good transport, schools or great design, access to reliable and fast internet is an essential part of modern apartment living. Unfortunately, outdated infrastructure has left many Sydney and Melbourne apartment residents settling for poor connections, ranking a lowly 88th in internet speed worldwide.

By connecting your building to our non-NBN network, your residents and owners can enjoy the benefits of ultra-fast and reliable internet, giving your building a competitive edge.
Installation is completed by our experienced technicians. They adhere to Australian professional standards, are neat and tidy, and the equipment installed is low impact facility and non-disruptive. Our installers and our equipment will not cause any damage to common property.
We make it easy and painless to connect your building to our network, using the latest low-impact facility equipment and following the highest standards to avoid disruptions and ensure there is no damage to common property.
Hear from Andrew, a GigaComm Network Deployment Manager on the GigaComm process.
For smaller buildings, installation takes 5-10 business days working during business hours only. Larger buildings can take longer, however we can scale our workforce to ensure the works have as little impact to residents as possible.If the building has specific requirements about power tools, a works plan can be submitted in advance to notify residents.
Low impact facility equipment has a very small footprint. Most installations have a cabinet in the MDF or rooftop plant room approximately the size of a large microwave, and controller boxes in the riser cupboards similar in size to a shoe box or existing network switches. The rooftop installation has a pole that is 3m tall and GigaComm do not install microwave dishes larger than 620mm.
No, the system is design to run completely independently of existing ISP’s (including the NBN) equipment and will not interfere with free-to-air TV or Foxtel services. Should in the unlikely event there is an issue with a building service after installation works is complete, please get in contact and GigaComm will investigate.
GigaComm’s network technology uses existing copper infrastructure to deliver services to customers over their existing wall socket. There is no invasive works into apartments with internal works confined to MDF/rooftop plant room and risers.
As per our regulatory obligations, the upkeep and maintenance of the system is GigaComm’s responsibility and at our cost.
Should a building notice that something appears to be requiring maintenance please reach out to us and we can assess and if required make good.GigaComm is happy to supply relevant completions documentation including photos and compliance certificates (electrical etc.) to the building for their records at the completion of works. GigaComm takes its responsibility to buildings seriously and want to ensure that the workmanship is of the highest quality.
GigaComm employs Australia’s leading telecommunications service providers to build and maintain our network. All contractors must have relevant licenses and insurances to complete work. Each contractor must complete a safe method work statement and daily prestart activities as part of insurance safety and compliance whilst working on site. Should the building require some of this documentation, it can be provided upon request.
GigaComm’s equipment is point to point radio and is not 5G mobile. There is no signal broadcast into people’s apartments and the radio signal passes above human usable space before entering the building by a connecting optic fibre cable. Think of it like “pipes in the sky” but instead of water, its information being passed between points. Further, the frequency of the equipment is such that it cannot penetrate solid material and is installed meeting Australian standards.GigaComm can supply EME safety certificates of radio equipment for the building’s records at request.
