A luxury student housing community ideally situated between several of Central Florida’s leading college campuses, The Crossings at Winter Park seeks to provide its residents with all the comforts they need to create the ideal home away from home. Each of the property’s 21 units include modern kitchen setups and fully furnished living rooms, as well as access to the property’s swimming pool and sun patio.

When it comes to WiFi connectivity, The Crossings at Winter Park understands that today’s college students more than ever require high-performance internet access in order to complete course assignments, stay in touch with family and friends or simply for entertainment purposes. Yet despite paying a substantial fee for its WiFi service, residents of the community continued to encounter slow speeds and signal disruption that only led to frustration. The community therefore sought out a new network provider with an established reputation for ensuring high quality WiFi service at an affordable price.
