No. 1 Amenity

As a matter of fact, many renter preference studies find that high-speed Internet access is the No. 1 amenity/feature of interest among MDU residents; and, many say high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi are more important than in-room laundry!

GATOR NET Turn-Key Design & Installation

GRUCom has been providing custom-designed fiber optic internet services to MDU and student housing communities surrounding the University of Florida and Santa Fe College for two decades.

Powered by GRUCom’s all-fiber-optic, 10-Gigabit Ethernet core network, and backed by Internet peering arrangements to Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google, the University of Florida, and many more.

GATOR NET can be installed in existing MDU communities as well as new-construction MDU developments. We provide complete turn-key solutions, a full-service, fiber-optic, Internet system managed by GRUCom from concept-to-completion.

Our team has more locally-focused experience than any other MDU provider in the area. We know how important that fast and reliable Internet service is among the UF and SFC student community. This isn’t the time to go with an out-of-town, remote operator.
