Related_Projects : Earlier projects were IC383 and IC383.1 - these were precursors to the setting up of the Ipswich Global Info Links (GIL). Some aspects of IC549 were about enhancements to GIL. Additional_Info : See also the web pages produced for the project on the GIL web site - http://www.gil.com.au/ibps.html During IC549 we learnt quite a lot about broadband (in Australia & overseas) and about high band width / future Internet services. We got some newspaper publicity. There is a "CiTR Customer Connections" article at [put URL here].
