Residents of Panorama Tower will have access to 1 Gigabit per second fiber-to-the-home internet when the building opens, with a network that is scalable to even faster speeds in the future.
A press release issued yesterday states that the building will top off at 830 feet (although the developer recently applied to build even taller.)
Florida East Coast Realty, LLC Names Atlantic Broadband Exclusive Communications Services Provider for Miami’s Panorama Tower
Local Internet, Phone, and TV Provider to Deliver Most Advanced Fiber-based Services to Residents and Businesses in and around Miami’s 830-foot-tall Global Landmark
MIAMI–Atlantic Broadband, the nation’s 12th largest cable operator, announced today that it has been named the exclusive provider of advanced TV, Internet, and communication services for Panorama Tower, a new, 83-story development by Florida East Coast Realty, LLC (FECR) to include 821 luxury apartments on Brickell Avenue in the heart of Downtown Miami. With construction anticipated to be completed by the end of 2017, Panorama Tower will be the tallest building in the State of Florida and the tallest residential tower on the eastern seaboard south of New York City.
“Atlantic Broadband is proud to be the exclusive communications and entertainment provider for this global landmark and has committed to investing millions of dollars in order to deliver the next generation of communications services”
Atlantic Broadband will invest $4.5 million to create a redundant fiber-to-the-unit network that will ensure that Panorama Tower will have a communications and entertainment services suite that matches its 830-foot-tall global landmark status both today and well into the future.
The company also will offer advanced business services, such as Metro Ethernet that can scale up to 1 Gigabit (GB) per second symmetrically and Hosted Voice Solutions that together enable new levels of business productivity to the commercial and retail spaces in and around the property, including a 208-room hotel, 100,000-square-foot medical office space, and 50,000 square feet of high-end retail space.
For residents, Atlantic Broadband will be deploying its multi-screen digital entertainment TiVo service with greatly expanded options for live, recorded, and on-demand television and web content on any screen, wherever a customer may be – including easy access to Netflix. In addition, Atlantic Broadband will offer Panorama residents Internet speeds up to 1 Gigabit per second with capabilities to scale well beyond that in the future. This will enable Panorama Tower residents to download an entire digital movie (14 GB) in under two minutes and to work from their apartments with an Internet connection that is faster than what exists in most modern offices.
Atlantic Broadband is also deploying a solution to enable high-quality carrier neutral cellular coverage throughout the complex utilizing a distributed antenna system (DAS) connected to its all-fiber network. This will enable residents and guests to use their mobile devices seamlessly, in and around the property limits, regardless of the wireless carrier.
“Atlantic Broadband is proud to be the exclusive communications and entertainment provider for this global landmark and has committed to investing millions of dollars in order to deliver the next generation of communications services,” said Atlantic Broadband’s President and CEO, Richard Shea. “Panorama Tower is a massive undertaking with its three-million-square-foot complex, and we’re excited to deploy the fastest and best technologies for area residents and businesses, as well as be part of history in having a hand in one of the biggest projects in Miami and on the eastern seaboard.”
“In the planning stages for Panorama Tower, we sought partners who were committed to delivering the ‘best of the best’ in design, technology, and innovation, and Atlantic Broadband had the vision and expertise that we needed,” said Tibor Hollo, FECR Chairman and President. “We are excited to work with such an innovative and flexible local partner to provide our residents and guests with the fastest Internet, impeccable wireless coverage – no matter the carrier – and superior TV entertainment offerings.”
