Adelaide goes ten gigabit with first buildings connected Featured

By

The first buildings have been connected to Ten Gigabit Adelaide, a fibre optic network which is designed for businesses and corporate big data users located in the Adelaide CBD to gain a competitive advantage for their businesses.

So far 40 buildings are in the process of being offered services, with an additional 140 buildings being finalised shortly, with the network to be progressively rolled out to 1000 buildings within the next two years.

Telecommunications company TPG Telecom was recently appointed as official network partner to deliver and install the new fibre optic network in Adelaide to provide 10Gbps uncontested and synchronous data transfer capability and a range of high-performance services tailored for each individual user.  

A building at 27 Currie Street, which is home to the Australian Institute of Business, is the first Ten Gigabit Adelaide-connected building.

Adelaide Mayor Martin Haese said it was an exciting day for the city.

“We have been inundated by registrations from businesses wanting to plug into Ten Gigabit Adelaide and, from today, businesses are being connected and will immediately reap the benefits.

“It will not only ensure local businesses have access to 21st century big data and communications enabling services, it will also attract new investment and business from interstate and overseas, furthering our reputation as a connected, smart, entrepreneurial and intelligent city.

“Ten Gigabit Adelaide is all about helping Adelaide retain, grow and attract new businesses, creating jobs, driving innovation and delivering economic and social returns for our city.  

“The Australian Institute of Business is just one example of the type of organisations and industry sectors that will benefit from this transformational new fibre network.”

Haese said Ten Gigabit Adelaide would particularly benefit data-intensive industries such as creative, biomedical, finance, defence, advanced manufacturing, information management and cyber security. “It will underpin future innovation in areas such as robotics, artificial intelligence, way-finding, 3D printing and augmented reality,” he said.
