Ten Gigabit Adelaide a world-first fibre-optic network for City of Adelaide businesses, providing access to 10Gbps data speeds and a range of high-performance services has been launched by the City Adelaide.

Ten Gigabit Adelaide network will be progressively rolled out to 1,000 buildings within the next two years, and is designed for businesses and corporate big data users located in the Adelaide CBD. It will enable businesses to send high volumes of data, quickly and securely, between their offices, business partners and clients around the world.

Lord 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,” he said.

“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. “

“Ten Gigabit Adelaide will 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.”

As well as local businesses, interstate and off-shore organisations that require ultra-fast, secure data speeds are also being targeted by the City of Adelaide to relocate their operations to the best and most cost-effective city to do business in Australia.
