The Steel City is About to get GigCity  


Steel City Businesses will soon have high-speed internet at their fingertips after Whyalla won GigCity.

It will be one of the first regional cities to be connected to the GigCity network through a $1 million State Government funded project.

Council CEO Chris Cowley said GigCity would be a game changer for Whyalla business and the local economy.

“GigCity is an essential element for the transformation of Whyalla, which will allow businesses to gain a technological competitive advantage and drive innovation,” Mr Cowley said.

“Every business in Whyalla could benefit from this.

“When up and running, Whyalla business will be able to sign up to an internet service that will provide 1 gigabit download and upload speeds.

“That is about 20 times quicker than currently available in Whyalla.”

Minister Pisoni said businesses in Whyalla will be able to take up the service at prices comparable to those available in metropolitan Adelaide GigCity precincts – ranging from $49.90 to $179.90 per month (ex GST), depending on the size of the business and the chosen plan.
