Internet stretches far and wide these days and has uses all over the globe.  Farmers can use it to help keep track of crops, financials, and new innovations.  Police can use it to better track crime statistics and solve cases.  And students can use it for anything and everything, and are likely the group out there that uses it most of everyone.  They need to research, write reports, collaborate, respond to important communications with professors, procrastinate with social media.  Sometimes they even have to take entire courses over the internet and so, shocker, the internet is a HUGE deal to students!

Luckily, Baltic Broadband now has Student Development offers available to housing facilities. So, if you’re running a student housing building and want to give your building an edge against all the other ones, check out our plans.  How does it give you an edge?  The biggest benefit is that renters will have a direct connection to their university’s online resources and portal.  Need to check the uni library for a book?  They can do it right from your building.  Or maybe a paper needs to be submitted and they’ve just spent all night working on it.  Piece of cake, they can send it through the uni’s submission portal without an issue thanks to your building’s direct connection to uni-services.

As you can see, each package offers a great option no matter if you’ve got just a few small buildings or one huge one!  Whatever your needs, we’ve got you covered here at Baltic Broadband.

What else do we offer?

If there’s ever a problem with your service, we offer a 5 hour fix time guarantee or your money back.  No more lengthy down times with no help in sight. Our one-month contracts also make it a whole lot easier for you to cancel if you feel we’re not providing you the service we promise.  Social media outlets are also optimised to our network so that your renters will have the quickest connection and be able to post their content with little to no hang time.

That’s not all, either.  If your students want to access your internet around town, they can!  Thanks to our private hotspots found in cafes, pubs, clubs, and train stations, there will almost never be a moment where they won’t be able to access the internet in Liverpool.

What does this mean for you as a building owner?

For starters, you can charge higher rent since every student in the building will be getting great, reliable internet automatically.  You’ll also increase interest in your building as there’s one less thing for renters to worry about (plus they’ll be paying less on average than if they bought their own plan).  You can even review usage on a real-time 24-hour basis so you can always keep an eye on costs.

So, what are you waiting for?  Order now!
