January 14, 2021 – A company hoping to help close the digital divide between big city data internet users and their country counterparts has lodged a development application to build an $11 million data centre in Dubbo.
On a vacant block of land at Jannali Rd, Leading Edge Data Centres plans to build a data centre which the company’s chief executive Chris Thorpe says will pave the way for faster download speeds in Dubbo and surrounding towns.
“It will allow Dubbo to become a lot more independent for its communication needs because it streamlines its dependency on Sydney metropolitan,” he said.
“You take Netﬂix or streaming services, if that content is cached or housed locally and streamed locally you’re no longer trying to pull a movie down a pipe from Sydney.
“It’s going to be a lot quicker, faster, more efﬁcient.”
Dubbo is one of 20 regional cities Leading Edge Data Centres aims to have a presence in.
