Alkimos network tender

Alkimos Beach project director Martin Gaedke said the network would deliver a range of high-speed broadband, telephone, Freeview digital television and Foxtel retail services.

He said there would be no need for antennas or satellite dishes with the optic fibre service and broadband speeds of up to 100Mbps. Development partners LandCorp and Lend Lease are also developing plans to provide popular international television channels, with an announcement expected early this year.
