In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
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%.
