#gigatown #gigatownoam update

Oamaru –  #gigatownoam –  is still at the top of the #gigatown leaderboard with 13,192.

That’s around a vote from every single person in the town – a great start for #gigatownoamaru.

It’s all aimed at turning the country’s Sharpest town, into the southern hemisphere’s first #gigatown, courstey of Chorus:

Over the course of the competition, we’ll measure social media and online community engagement in support of each eligible ‘town’.

The town with the loudest voice will be New Zealand’s first Gigatown, and will be well positioned to become a leading digital innovation hub for New Zealand, showcasing how ultra-fast broadband can re-define our economy, reshape how our children learn and change how our communities live, work and play.

Points will be counted up for each town and adjusted relative to the town’s size to become ‘Gigapoints’, which are displayed on this website so you can keep track of your town’s progress. The adjustment for town size ensures that each town has the same opportunity to be the Gigatown.

The five eligible towns with the most points at the end of the initial round will go forward to the finals. Find out more.
