The Northern Territory Government has granted Major Project Status to HyperOne

The Northern Territory is fast becoming recognised as a digital hub on a national and global scale — and that reputation will continue to grow with today's announcement that the Northern Territory Government has awarded Major Project Status to the new $1.5 Billion high-speed network HyperOne.

This project will create around 1000 Territory jobs and deliver world class high-speed fibre for Territorians, unlock new opportunities for local jobs, and provide benefits to health, public safety and education.

Simply put, HyperOne has the potential to turn Darwin into Australia’s digital gateway to Asia. HyperOne Founder, Bevan Slattery, spoke about the significance of a project of this scale:

“With more than 500 million people within 50 milliseconds of Darwin, HyperOne will be transformational for the Territory economy and will make it the digital hub of Northern Australia.

“We are seeing exponential demand for data right across the economy supporting the digital transformation of industries like agriculture, mining and defence and investment in new industries like space, AI and renewable energy."
