The 2016/17 State Budget will include $4.65 million to establish Adelaide as part of the Gig City network, offering businesses internet speeds of up to 100-times the national average, and at least 10 times the download speed of the National Broadband Network.

The network will make Adelaide the first GigCity in Australia and the capital of ultra-fast internet for business, attracting investment from high tech global companies, as well as creating jobs in future industries.

The network will provide affordable one gigabit connections, with speeds of up to ten gigabits per second available if businesses invest in additional end-user technology.

GigCity will use the existing SABRENet optical fibre network, and will be rolled out at Tonsley, Technology Park, Techport, Thebarton BioScience Precinct, St Paul’s Creative Centre, the Majoran Co-working Space, Hub Adelaide, and the Stretton Centre.

GigCity Adelaide also supports Adelaide’s leadership position as a Smart City, and Cisco’s only Lighthouse City in Australia. For more information visit GigCity Adelaide
