While not all of this is available for you just yet, it’s really not far away.
At a higher level the ethics and governance of such incredible systems are being developed to ensure equitable distribution of the benefits and safe and secure use of the technology. There is a little way to go… but only a little. It is an eminent future we must all prepare for and should be excited for. It is happening and it is very, very exciting.
A smart place to foster growth.
Where is this future? … It’s here and now. The one city in Australia set to benefit, grow and change the most from this revolution is Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. With all the right ingredients to foster creativity and entrepreneurship, matched by world-class facilities and infrastructure, the Sunshine Coast will be central to the future of creating our new tomorrow.
Here’s why it’s happening on the Sunshine Coast:
International Submarine Broadband Cable
If you’re thinking we already have internet, what’s the big deal? The big deal is there is a clear correlation between subsea cables and macro-economic growth in terms of GDP, incomes, capital formation and trade. That is to say that as a country increases their connectivity, their economy expands. Importantly there aren’t any real examples of a regional economy like the Sunshine Coast receiving such a boost. If at the macro-economic level there is a massive boost, and there is much being said about its effect on the Queensland economy, we can only imagine what the impact will be on the Sunshine Coast and how this city by the beach will change forever.
Directly connecting the Sunshine Coast virtually and physically to the rest of world, the installation of the international submarine broadband cable will make telecommunications faster, cheaper and more robust, and therefore highly attractive to data sensitive or latency sensitive sectors or industries that desire quick access to the Asian markets. We will also see an increase in local telecoms infrastructure, service providers and IT service providers. A number of data storage facilities are already making enquiries to set up in the new CBD … Google would you like to move to the sunny Sunshine Coast?
New Maroochydore CBD – The Bright City
Work is well underway for the new Maroochydore City Centre which has been designed for the 21st Century, breaking new ground with its extensive use of technology to create a cleaner, greener, more liveable, dynamic city centre.
Leveraging the incredible opportunity that the Submarine Broadband Cable presents, the new Maroochydore City Centre will offer Australia’s fastest telecommunications and data connection to Asia, while also delivering an incredible list of Smart features setting it apart from other regional centres – and, indeed, the State capitals.
