With millions of people working and learning from home during the pandemic, access to fast and reliable internet is more important than ever.

We understand working from home may be uncharted waters for many of our residents. So, you converted that spare room into a comfortable home office with natural light…now what? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. From conference calls to movie nights, we want to ensure your household is well-equipped to continue its daily activities without interruption.

As families shelter in place, data demands have skyrocketed, making proper connectivity essential. In fact, according to CenturyLink CTO Andrew Dugan, web use was up 35% across the nation over the past few weeks. Stable internet infrastructure is vital and has become a pain point for smaller communities where jobs and schools have moved to virtual platforms.

With the help of Frog, our innovative technology partner, we are committed to keeping the community plugged-in with low latency during this transition.

Each resident currently receives a standard internet speed of two gigabits per second included in HOA assessments. We were the first residential community in the country to offer this standard in an effort to foster global access and promote growth for our neighborhoods.  However, for residents who may need a more robust connection, families also have the option to upgrade their internet speed to 10 gigabits per second. This means each member of your family can connect personal devices to the internet without the frustration of slowed downloads and stalled Netflix streams.

We understand families are seeking convenience and comfort while adjusting to this new normal. In these uncertain times, community support is imperative— in every aspect, not only with in-home connectivity. We are all in this together, and we are committed to keeping our community connected moving forward.
