GigCity ultra-fast internet network lit up


Adelaide’s ultra-fast internet network was switched on today giving businesses access to affordable high-speed internet which is up to 100 times faster than the national average.

The $7.6 million GigCity Adelaide network was launched at TechinSA, which is funded by the State Government to work with the high-tech industry to bring innovative South Australian products and technologies to global markets.

Adelaide-based internet provider EscapeNet will deliver internet services through the South Australian Broadband Research and Education Network (SABRENet) fibre optic network to key innovation sites and co-working spaces across metropolitan Adelaide, including Tonsley Innovation Precinct, TechInSA, Stretton Centre and St Paul’s Creative Centre.

Businesses that are tenants of those precincts will have access to gigabit-speed internet service plans ranging from $49.90 to $179.90 per month, providing access to affordable and less restrictive plans than what is currently available in the marketplace.

Businesses interested in connecting to the GigCity Adelaide network are encouraged to contact precinct managers to discuss eligibility, data requirements and pricing plans. Further details are available at www.gigcity.com.au.

GigCity Adelaide is part of the South Australian Government’s $80 million investment to support innovative businesses, entrepreneurs and researchers through programs and initiatives, including the $10 million South Australian Early Commercialisation Fund and the $50 million South Australian Venture Capital Fund to drive economic growth and job creation.
