Stellar Launches 1-Gigabit Grand Rapids Fiber internet for Gateway at Belknap Residents

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Apr. 18, 2017 - One of Grand Rapids newest apartment communities, The Gateway at Belknap, will feature Spartan Net's Ultra High Speed Spartan Fiber internet service for its residents.

Stellar announced that 1-Gigabit internet service has been fully deployed at the new development. The 1,000 Mbps internet service means faster downloads, less buffering and an ultra-reliable connection. You can download your favorite 90-minute high-definition movie in as little as 34 seconds.

According to the National Multifamily Housing Council, when considering where to live, renters rank high speed internet higher than amenities like a pool or a fitness center. The Spartan Fiber internet service is available at apartment communities throughout Downtown Grand Rapids. Apartments with Grand Rapids fiber internet service can be found using Spartan Net's apartment fiber locator.

The Gateway at Belknap Apartments are located in the Belknap Lookout neighborhood overlooking the Medical mile, which includes Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine, Spectrum Health's downtown hospital campus, the Van Andel Research Institute and Grand Valley State University's Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences.

Residents also have access to Spartan Net powered community Wi-Fi that allows connection to any other Stellar Broadband Wi-Fi location. "They love it," said Richard Laing, chief operating officer of Spartan Net, "It's the best internet you can get, up to 100 times faster than cable and it's here now."

The Gateway at Belknap development is located at:
513 Clancy Avenue NE
Grand Rapids, MI 49503
