History of TelSoc

The Telecommunications Association Inc. (TelSoc) and its immediate predecessor, the Telecommunications Society of Australia, has served the Australian telecommunications industry as its learned society since its initial formation as the Telegraph Electrical Society in 1874, in response to enthusiasm for the then new engineering science of electrical telegraphy.

Over the last 10 to 15 years, many Communication Service Providers (CSPs) elected to establish an international presence, extending beyond their home countries and acquiring new subscribers and revenue along the way. This strategy ? focused on high-value opportunities and growth ? served CSPs well for almost a decade.

Just a few years ago there were few options to deliver ultra-broadband on a mass scale.

Which Victorian scientist/engineer invented a form of television before John Logie Baird was born? And why have you never heard of him? He also invented sixteen different telephones which he installed around Ballarat before the GPO started and which were much admired by Alexander Graham Bell personally. Listen to the fascinating tale and why it is relevant to innovation today from our inaugural Henry Sutton orator:
Robyn Williams of the ABC Science Show.

Prof. Derek Abbott

One of the leading unsolved mysteries in Australia, on a par with the disappearance of Harold Holt, is the case of the Somerton Man. This was a very athletically fit man found in a nice suit lying deceased on Somerton Beach in 1948. The mystery is that there was no mark on him and there was nothing to identify him. No one came forward to identify him either.

In January this year, the US Court ruled the FCC had over-reached its powers in imposing "net neutrality" conditions on service providers. Does this imply the biggest content providers can get the best speed, quality, price? What happens to the open internet?
