Unley to be a Gig City!

The City of Unley is officially becoming a “Gig City”. 

We have been successful in our application to join of the South Australian GigCity Network (gigcity.com.au), the first such network in Australia. Unley will be connected to the broader innovation network that includes high-tech innovation and co-working spaces including Lot Fourteen and the Tonsley Innovation Precinct.

 A high-speed fibre internet connection offering up to 10 Gigabit per second speeds will be installed at the Unley Civic Precinct where it can be extended to adjacent businesses. The network is designed to support high growth industries by expanding their capacity to adopt new technologies, develop leading-edge ideas and improve business operations.

 In the first phase of the rollout we will be connecting the Edmund Cottages Co-working and Business Innovation Hub that is being redeveloped in 2021/22. The new expanded facility is anticipated to host 30-35 different companies across a mix of professional services, creative design, technology and multimedia. By providing high-speed internet services and inter-connection with other innovation precincts we will be strongly positioned to develop and attract new types of high-tech businesses to the City of Unley.

 Providing high-speed broadband to drive economic opportunities is a key outcome of our Digital Strategy and supports future initiatives that will form part of our Smart City Plan.
