On the night of the 23rd June 1989 Robert Elz of the University of
Melbourne and Torben Neilsen of the University of Hawaii completed the
connection work that bought the Internet to Australia. It was a 56kbps
satellite circuit, and the Australian end used a Proteon P4100 router.
Since that day we've evidently connected some 56.8% of the population,
or 12,073,852 Australians, to the Internet (according to user
statistics published by the ITU-T)
I think thats a pretty impressive record, and worth noting!
