City of Prospect has joined the international GigCity network. It connects Prospect at 10-gigabit speeds to the global GigCity network.
Minister for Industry and Skills, David Pisoni officially launched the GigCity network on Wednesday, 12 September at Palace Nova Cinema Complex on Prospect Road.
New Prospect Economic Analysis identifies strong growth in lifestyle businesses and knowledge workers.
“We were one of the first councils to recognise the importance of emerging technologies and the positive impact they have on our community and its local economy. The GigCity Network will be essential to attract high end, data intensive businesses, such as defence and multimedia,” said Mayor David O’Loughlin.
Prospect Road now has the essential ingredients of an Prospect Innovation Precinct, building on the success of the existing co-working spaces on Prospect Road.
It includes the new Council offices, Community Hub Library and Innovation Centre (CLIC) and 96 Prospect Road (office space above the cinema complex).
The Prospect Road Innovation Precinct consists of four anchor sites:
- CLIC (Council) at 128 Prospect Road
- Little City co-working studio at 118 Prospect Road
- Business Hub serviced offices at 110-112 Prospect Road
- Palace Nova Cinema and offices at 96 Prospect Road
The GigCity network has now come to Prospect. The State Government project will deliver ultra-high speed internet to businesses, with speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second.

GigCity will assist in attracting high tech businesses to Prospect and will complement existing internet service providers such as TPG and NBN. The Addition of GigCity makes Prospect a hyper-connected precinct.
GigCity is underpinned and powering by SABRENet, while Escapenet has been engaged by the Government to roll out the network to individual precincts.
SABRENet is a not-for-profit arm of the universities, but has recently changed its constitution to enable it to connect to innovation precincts, like Prospect.
