    About GigCity

    How GigCity works

    The GigCity network delivers a low-latency and ultra-fast service, offering cloud computing and storage capabilities that support highly interactive and visually immersive experiences.

    GigCity Adelaide is delivered by the South Australian Broadband Research and Education Network (SABRENet) – a fibre-optic broadband network linking Adelaide’s major research and education sites, and EscapeNet, an Adelaide-based internet service provider.

    The SABRENet fibre optic network extends over 250km and connects more than 190 education, research and innovation locations across South Australia, including university campuses, research precincts, teaching hospitals, TAFE campuses and schools.

    SABRENet is a not-for-profit company jointly owned by the University of Adelaide, Flinders University, the University of South Australia and the South Australian Government.


    No set up charges. No lock in contracts.

    Businesses can connect with month-to-month access to GigCity.

    Service available in select locations; several factors impact speed.

    GigCity is limited to eligible businesses and unavailable for residential customers.


    Connecting to the network is easy. In Adelaide, you can access GigCity as a business tenant at designated innovation precincts and co-working spaces across Adelaide.

    In Whyalla and Mount Gambier, GigCity services will be available to all businesses within 350 metres of one of several wireless base stations in each city.
