      Changing the public facing name is an important move. Outside of a small, enthusiastic but largely 'techie' constituency no-one I've spoken to in six months had heard of either the Internet Society or ISOC-AU. The board of Internet Australia is extremely talented and experienced and is committed to making a difference. Increasing the organisation's profile is a necessary prerequisite to achieving the objective of becoming a trusted advisor to government and industry in order to foster our digitally enabled future. The only way to improve download speeds (and upload speeds for that matter) is to have a well known, neutral advocate for everyone who uses the Internet. That's the role to which Internet Australia aspires.
