Gigatown Whakatane
by Lynda Frisby - Wednesday, 26 March 2014, 3:39 PM

Gigatown will be the first town in the Southern hemisphere to access a one gigabit per second (1Gbps) internet connection.  How do we decide who gets to be Gigatown? Actually, we don't decide - you do.  We're looking for the town that wants it the most. There are two ways we’ll be measuring that drive, enthusiasm and determination to be Gigatown:

1. by listening out for the town with the loudest voice on social media.

2. by tallying up the supporters for each town signing up on this website.

Go to    Sign up and vote for Whakatane.

We are currently in 8th come on folks get voting!!
