Our partnership with The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games
The Commonwealth Games are transforming the Gold Coast. And Optus is transforming how Australia – and the world – connects with the biggest sporting event of the decade.
We’re helping to bring visitors, athletes, staff and spectators from the world over the very best experience at 37 venues across Queensland. With our best ever mobile connectivity, high-speed cable infrastructure and onsite technical support, this year’s Games have been transformed to meet the demands of today.
The Countdown is On
Soon, the eyes of the world will be on us, and just like our athletes, we’re ready. More than 500 TV cameras will broadcast over 1,000 hours of live coverage to 1.5 billion viewers across the globe.
In a Commonwealth Games first, Optus has developed an innovative system for this broadcast content, as well as voice and data services, to be delivered over a single integrated network, by one team. Giving our Games partners the strength and scalability needed to meet the demands of a wide range of audiences.
We’re ready. Are you?
