Local Adelaide success story Australian Fashion Labels has become one of the first city businesses to connect to Ten Gigabit Adelaide.

AIB the first business in Australia to connect to ultra-fast Ten Gigabit network
The Australian Institute of Business (AIB) is proud to be the first business and building in South Australia to connect to the Adelaide City Council’s revolutionary high-speed fibre optic data network – Ten Gigabit Adelaide. The network provides access to 10Gbps uncontested data speeds which is the fastest internet connection available in Australia and the only network of its kind for businesses.
At AIB’s headquarters on March 5, the then Lord Mayor Martin Haese officially launched Ten Gigabit Adelaide and, along with AIB CEO Paul Wappett, connected AIB to the ultra-fast network which is being delivered by TPG Telecom.
As the largest MBA provider in Australia and leaders in accessible online education, fast and reliable internet speeds and data capabilities are critical to the delivery of AIB’s programmes. The phenomenally fast 10Gbps data speeds will support AIB in improving the interactive online learning experience for its students in Australia and around the world.
On being the first business in Australia to experience the network, Paul Wappett said he and the AIB staff are thrilled.
“As a progressive higher education provider delivering online education for working adults, it is critical we embrace industry-leading technology. This new network is faster and more affordable, allowing us to continue to provide accredited, high quality post-graduate education at an affordable price point. It also enables us to further enhance our interactive online learning experience and export it around the world.”
AIB has invested significantly in its online learning environment and infrastructure over the past two years to create a truly engaging and interactive learning experience for its students. In addition, following the successful transition to online exams this year, The Agile MBA is now 100% online, allowing students greater flexibility and accessibility to study from anywhere in the world.
Proudly a South Australian business, AIB has been delivering business education from the state since its inception in 1984. The business school has become a truly global institution, with students and alumni from over 90 countries, but South Australia remains the ideal location for AIB to export its programmes to the world.
“South Australia has become a hub for innovation in recent years, aligning well with AIB’s innovative approach to education. The new Ten Gigabit Network is an example of that and another reason why Adelaide is the right place for AIB to be based,” Paul Wappett explained.
Ten Gigabit Adelaide is here! Community, industry and business leaders worldwide are taking note.
“The majority of our work is dispersed inspection and non-destructive testing of assets, most of which is digitised. If we could tap into a ten-gigabit data network, we could centrally locate qualified inspectors and engineers to make real-time decisions rather than having hundreds of field staff flying in and out of remote locations. This could be a real game-changer for our industry and I imagine many others.” Ian Coker, Operations Manager of Bureau Veritas, South Australia.
"This network has the potential to totally transform the City of Adelaide. Not only does it anticipate the future needs of businesses but will establish the City as an early adopter of innovative technologies. Throughout the United States, we have seen that decisions like this have been key to driving innovation and new sources of growth." Professor Edward J Blakely, Chair, Future Cities Collaborative and Honorary Professor in Urban Policy, University of Sydney.
"It's fantastic to see the City of Adelaide working to enable a significant advantage to Adelaide based businesses when competing in the new global digital economy. This is great news for companies like Chamonix that are continually searching for innovative ways to help our customers do business with the world. A super-fast network in the city will help us further explore areas such as virtual reality, machine learning, telehealth and the internet of things. This is great news for business in Adelaide. Access to a super-fast network will allow Adelaide based businesses to communicate utilising new evolving technologies, enabling new digital channels and allow larger payloads to be shared between businesses. Usage of this network will provide significantly greater efficiencies for both local collaboration and when working with other connected high speed cities." Geoff Rohrsheim, Director, Cevo
"Redstack is a progressive, North Adelaide based South Australian headquartered business. At the core of our business is high end cloud services like SalesForce.com, so reliable fast connectivity to Cloud datacentres is critical in maintaining a competitive advantage. With the current decline in internet data service – largely due to congestion on the internet, we are already seeing marked declines in productivity. Without access to high speed, cloud connected data, we will have no option but relocate our business to hi speed data centric locations. Hi speed cloud data access is now a mission critical service, second only to electricity. We fully support this project and see enormous benefits for our city and our business."
