Sunshine Coast International Broadband Network

In 2020, the Sunshine Coast will deliver Australia's fastest telecommunications connection to Asia from the east coast and the second fastest to the United States.

Sunshine Coast Council is the first local government in Australia to invest in an international submarine cable which will connect to the new Maroochydore city centre and provide Queensland's first direct international data and telecommunications connection to global systems.

The opportunity to develop the region as Australia's first Digital Trade Hub will ensure the Sunshine Coast is a true Point of Presence for international and domestic digital connectivity.

The cable will also act as a catalyst for technology businesses and associated high-value jobs. With future-proof capacity, the new cable will increase data transmission speed, reduce risk and lead to a reduction in international communications costs for business and consumers.

With an international broadband submarine cable landing and superior telecommunications connectivity and data infrastructure, the region will be one of Australia’s most attractive business destinations for national and global operators alike.
