NZ town wins Gigabit competition.....

HIGH speed internet is coming to Dunedin after the New Zealand town won a competition to receive one gigabit per second for the next three years.
IT marks the end of a year-long campaign by telecommunications company Chorus to turn an ordinary Kiwi town into an internet hub, or gigatown.
So far 1Gbps fibre networks have been rolled out in only a few countries, including Singapore, Japan, France, and some parts of the United States.
Dunedin will receive 1Gbps internet services at a cheaper rate, and businesses and community projects will receive up to $NZ700,000 ($A651,678.07) to switch to the faster connection.
