Ten Gigabit Adelaide connects 40 more buildings
The City of Adelaide has announced that the next 40 buildings have been connected under the Ten Gigabit Adelaide ultra high-speed broadband network project.
The milestone brings the number of buildings connected to the network to 69, according to Adelaide Lord Mayor Martin Haese.
“So much planning has gone into preparing the city for the network over many months, and it is so pleasing to see tangible results,” said the Lord Mayor.
“Recently we have seen physical works commence and 45 buildings and 29 businesses connected to Ten Gigabit Adelaide sooner than we ever thought possible. We are now seeing an additional 40 buildings connected and a range of jobs created, which is terrific news for the local economy.”
Network partner TPG Telecom has engaged a number of local companies to assist with the rollout and has announced that up to 70 new local jobs will be created during the construction phase as a result.
There are also indications that the project is attracting a run of companies seeking to relocate to the city and take advantage of the network.
The Ten Gigabit Adelaide network is expected to be the fastest and cheapest internet and data solution available in the world.
