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.
