We're already a gigatown

28 November 2014​

Mayor Annette Main and the Whanganui Digital Leaders Forum congratulated Dunedin on its win in the Chorus #Gigatown competition. 

Whanganui was not eligible to enter the Chorus #Gigatown competition because our ultrafast broadband network is being built by Ultrafast Fibre, not by Chorus. 

However, Mayor Main says we are already a ‘gigatown’ because Ultrafast Fibre’s network has the capacity to offer 1 gigabit speeds to retail service providers.

She also stressed the importance of addressing international connectively through “a high capacity, open access international cable would make this country an even more desirable place to invest and do business.”
