4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".
Internet Speed in Australia Gets Slower
Australia’s average connection speeds now places 44th in the world, down 4 places from a 2013 report which estimates online connection speeds and broadband uptake worldwide.
Some believe that the drop-off is the result of delay, indecision and policy change on the national broadband network, which is the fibre optic network implemented nationally.
In the meantime, many industry observers are critical of the initial approach, saying that copper could slow broadband connection speeds by up to 50%.
