Ten Gigabit City
John Duthie and Diana Bleby attended the ACS (Australian Computer Society) lunch at the Stamford Grand Hotel. Following lunch, John had opportunities to speak to a number of senior ACS members and leaders. The topic was the ten gigabit city plan, as well as reminiscing about the early days of the internet. Such as paying Ozemail $5 an hour for a 24K connection.
World leading smart cities like Barcelona and Singapore have been reaping the benefits from gigabit capacity for years. Adelaide is becoming a Ten Gigabyte city too. It will provide businesses with a CBD-wide network. Avoiding contention and congestion on the internet. The speed will be about 1,000 times faster than the national average. And 100 times faster than Australia’s NBN. It has the potential to provide opportunity and creativity never before seen in Australia.
