No quick fix for a slow internet
No matter who wins the battle between the Optus-led G9 consortium and Telstra over the right to build Australia's new broadband internet network, one thing is clear: Australians are unlikely to see any real improvement in their internet speeds for many years. On Monday, one of the internet's original architects, Californian-based Professor Larry Smarr, said Australia's standard of living was at risk because the country was not putting in place essential modern broadband infrastructure. He said "real broadband" would be 1000 times the current speed and 80 times the speed that the Government and Labor propose. Professor Smarr's attack echoed earlier concerns by media magnates Rupert Murdoch and James Packer, who both lamented the current internet speeds in Australia.
"The Sydney Morning Herald"
Vaile vows to unveil Broadband plan soon
The government hopes to announce the details of its broadband package this week, Deputy Prime Minister Mark Vaile says. His comments followed claims by a pioneer of the internet Professor Larry Smarr who said Australia's living standards were in danger of slipping out of the top tier because the nation was not gearing up for the next level of internet infrastructure.
Broadband details this week ... hopefully
Mr Vaile said the Government hoped to make an announcement on a process for determining whether Telstra or its rival, the Optus-led G9 group, get the go-ahead to build a fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) network. Internet pioneer Larry Smarr has said Australia's living standards were in danger of slipping from the top tier because the nation was not gearing up for the next level of internet infrastructure.
Internet guru says Australia needs faster broadband
Australia needs to get cracking and gear up for the next generation of high speed broadband or risk being left behind.
The warning comes from one of the Internet's original architects, who says Australia's current mediocre status on broadband could ultimately affect living standards. Professor Larry Smarr, a director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, says the current political debate over the future of broadband will be critical to Australia's global economic standing.

Aust needs 'real broadband'
Australia's living standards are at risk unless the nation gears up for the next level of internet infrastructure, an expert says. Larry Smarr, a director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), said "real broadband" would allow connections 1000 times the speed of Australian connections.
Australian broadband may drag down standard of living: expert
A decade ago, broadband was a luxury. Now with more than 2 million Australians connected we're told that we're still in danger of being left behind by the rest of the world.
The warning came today from one of the architects of the Internet, who says unless Australia boosts the speed of its broadband network by 80 times, we'll experience a big slide in our standard of living.
Broadband vision needed for Australia: expert warns
The future of broadband in Australia is already a hot election issue, but a US analyst is warning today that the proposals being put forward by both the Government and the Labor Party will ultimately force a steep fall in living standards in Australia. Professor Larry Smarr says the world standards for what he calls "real broadband" are 80 times the speeds being proposed in Australia at the moment.

Program Would Put Oceans at Arm's Length
UCSD will play a leading role in the recently approved, multimillion-dollar Ocean Observatories Initiative, a nationwide project meant to boost the public's scientific knowledge of the oceans. Scientists from the Jacobs School of Engineering, the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, the San Diego Supercomputer Center and the UCSD School of Medicine have united to contribute their expertise to the initiative in the hopes that studying the ocean will lead to new discoveries about natural phenomena such as hurricanes, earthquakes and global warming, as well as in the physical, chemical and biological sciences.
