Apply for 10G Challenge and Win up to $100,000!

Deadline: July 1, 2022

Applications are now open for the 10G Challenge! 10G is the broadband network of the future that will deliver internet speeds of 10 gigabits per second, with the power and capacity to support whatever the future holds.

10G will offer speeds ten times faster than the fastest internet currently available. Think of all the technologies that have become possible since the days of dial up! The improved reliability, security, speed and latency of the 10G network mean that the future is just around the corner.

The 10G network will provide reliability, security, speed and low latency. Reliability ensures a stable internet connection regardless of the number of devices connected. Security means that you can always be sure your data is safe. Speed means that data can be delivered to the end user faster, making even more immersive experiences available. Low latency means these experiences will be seamless, without lag.
