Burlington Telecom’s Gigabit Internet to be included as amenity in every apartment unit


Residents of Liberty House at the new Cambrian Rise development on North Avenue will enjoy great connections to the waterfront AND a connection to the fastest residential internet speeds in the City via Burlington Telecom’s ultra-high-speed fiber network. The first phase of Cambrian Rise, a building that was formerly St. Joseph’s Orphanage and home to Burlington College, will now include a Burlington Telecom symmetrical, gigabit internet connection in every unit.


“High-speed internet and a reliable wireless experience are becoming the gold standard both at work and at home. Studies show residents value reliable internet more than in-unit laundry as an amenity, so it was important for us to have Burlington Telecom for this project. The ability to work from home strengthens our commitment to reduce car dependence at this property. This addition is part of our ongoing efforts to make Cambrian Rise one of the most special places to live in Burlington.” says project developer Eric Farrell.


Scheduled to open in the summer of 2017, Liberty House sets a high bar for all future developments in Burlington. Along with Gigabit access in every unit, Burlington Telecom is also providing Wi-Fi hotspots in common areas like the laundry room, fitness center, craft room and outdoor picnic area. Providing access to Gig internet and wireless via a partnering with Burlington Telecom results in substantially better performance and value than other options available, allowing residents instant access to the fastest, most reliable connectivity available without the hassles of arranging for service, waiting for an installer or committing to long-term contracts.


“Gigabit internet is no longer a luxury amenity. It’s as essential a utility as electricity or water. Burlington is increasingly focused on earning a reputation as an innovative tech hub. 21st Century workers are tech-savvy professionals, consultants and telecommuters. Forward thinking developers, like Eric Farrell, know that ultra-high speed broadband is an important component in the ‘quality of life’ that benefits those that live here and attracts new-comers to the area.” – Stephen Barraclough, Burlington Telecom General Manager
