Government of South Australia - Department of State Development


    GigCity service extended

    Since 2017, the South Australian Government has invested in the provision of fast, reliable and affordable internet service to a network of the state’s business and innovation precincts through the GigCity program.

    More than 725 GigCity customers across Adelaide, Mount Gambier and Whyalla are currently benefitting from this service – which has remained at the same low price since inception.

    Due to expire in June 2024, the Department for Industry, Innovation and Science has renewed its funding agreement with provider SABRENet – meaning the GigCity program will be extended for metropolitan customers for at least another two years, until June 2026.

    GigCity customers in Whyalla and Mount Gambier will continue to be serviced by provider Wide Networks until at least 2027.

    Recognising businesses’ growing reliance on fast and reliable internet connection, the GigCity fibre optic network was established to provide this service at an affordable price point – and with no lock-in contracts – to businesses and other organisations operating from the state’s innovation and business precincts.

    From as little as $49.90 per month, tenants of these precincts – including South Australian startups, businesses, universities, and other education providers – enjoy download speeds of one gigabit per second, equivalent to the fastest internet services available on the Australian retail market.

    Other benefits to customers include:

    • The ability to transfer, download and upload data at gigabit speeds,
    • Seamless high-definition video streaming, film and game production, and virtual reality experiences,
    • Access to cloud-based storage and software-as-a-service (SaaS) support from local data centres,
    • Cyber security support.
