QCN is connecting Queensland

Fibre optic cable on top of the SuperGrid transmission lines will be unlocked by government owned business, the Queensland Capacity Network (QCN).

With the potential to support access to nearly 20,000 kilometres of fibre and create one of the largest regional fibre networks in Australia, regional industries will be able to connect to the internet at the same speed and cost as capital cities.

QCN is also working with Queensland Rail on opportunities to further improve digital connectivity with 2000 kilometres of optical fibre in the rail network.

Since 2020, QCN has worked to utilise 13,000 kilometres of government-owned fibre networks to provide a twelve-fold increase in internet capacity across Queensland.
