Nexium signing July 2018
City of Gold Coast stage one of the high speed fibre optic network is now ready for use by internet service providers and commercial organisations.
The City of Gold Coast’s fibre optic network runs from Helensvale through the Health and Knowledge Precinct and what was the Commonwealth Games Village, south to Broadbeach, connecting with the convention centre.
The fibre optic cable stretches for 45 kilometres, from Helensvale to Coolangatta, with an additional 40 kilometres reticulated through major entertainment precincts. It is used for the operations of various City services, including its security camera network. City of Gold Coast has appointed Nexium Telecommunications as the reseller agent for the fibre optic network. Nexium, a Queensland based telecommunications provider, will work with local ISP’s and commercial businesses to provide high-speed resilient internet and dark fibre solutions in areas of the Gold Coast that have been difficult to access in the past.
The City’s optic fibre system will enhance the Gold Coast safe city camera network capability, as well as open up new service delivery models. This is the next step in the City’s move to have the fastest internet in Australia by 2021.
“Nexium Communications are excited to be involved with City of Gold Coast and their vision for a digitally connected city,” said Tony Riley, Senior Account Manager at Nexium.
“High speed resilient internet services will enable Gold Coast businesses to deliver economic benefit to the region” he said.
