Adelaide's first Ten Gigabit buildings connected
The first CBD buildings have been connected to Adelaide’s Ten Gigabit fibre-optic network.
Forty buildings are in the process of being offered services, with an additional 140 buildings to be finalised soon.
The network will be progressively rolled out to 1000 buildings within the next two years.
The first Ten Gigabit Adelaide-connected building is at 27 Currie Street, home to the Australian Institute of Business.
Ten Gigabit Adelaide is designed for businesses and corporate big data users located in the Adelaide CBD, and will enable them to send high volumes of data quickly and securely.
TPG Telecom was recently appointed as Official Network Partner to deliver and install the new network, provide 10 Gbps uncontested and synchronous data transfer capability and a range of high-performance services tailored for each individual user.
“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,” said Adelaide Lord Mayor Martin Haese on Monday.
“Ten Gigabit Adelaide will particularly benefit data-intensive industries such as creative, biomedical, finance, defence, advanced manufacturing, information management and cybersecurity,” he added.
“It will underpin future innovation in areas such as robotics, artificial intelligence, wayfinding, 3D printing and augmented reality.”
Access plans will start from $399 per month, plus GST.
“This is considerably less than what is currently on offer in the market,” said TPG’s group executive of corporate, government and wholesale, Mark Rafferty.
