Launtel promotes Gigabit State

Tasmanian-owned telco, Launtel, launched its Blue Ocean™ Gigabit nbn™ Internet service in Hobart in October, advancing a plan to make Tasmania the nation’s first “Gigabit State.” The lightning-fast service connects Tasmania with the global gigabit economy. Launtel chose Priceline Glenorchy for its launch ceremony to demonstrate that gigabit speeds can be a productive addition to the information technology utilised by any business in Tasmania. Launtel offers internet speeds 10 times faster than any other available internet service to businesses that have pure fibre to the premises connections. The services are 100 times faster than the present national average download speed of 10.1 Mbps. Launtel CEO, Michael Costigan, said: “Tasmania has long relied on four mainstays of economic growth: forestry, mining, agriculture and tourism. The introduction of gigabit internet adds a new economic driver that offers high-wage employment opportunities and environmentally friendly growth. It’s an industry that firmly places Tasmania at the forefront of the high-tech industry in Australia, and makes it the logical business location for Australian businesses wishing to interact on equal terms with other high speed economies around the world.”
