ADSL speeds range from 512 kbit s to the maximum speed of 1 Mbit s through ADSL broadband. 1 Mbit s was only recently introduced in 2006 and priced at BND$128 per month (Equivalent to Singapore currency).

In addition to many of the existing rides there was also a small zoo on site from 1899 to 1938 and a steam-powered carousel which was replaced by the current carousel in 1921. The zoo was created following a national trend to incorporate zoological parks in public parks which began in the latter quarter of the nineteenth century. Beginning with only two raccoons, the collection soon grew in size and variety and by 1903 included an Australian owl, mink, bears, alligators and monkeys and many others. The zoo eventually closed, most likely due to the death of the Park Keeper, Wiley Howell, who had kept it going. key_people Glenn Rufrano (CEO (Chief executive officer)) Mark Wilson (CIO (Chief Investment Officer)) Graham Terry (COO (Chief Operating Officer)) area_served Australia New Zealand USA industry Property Development (Property development), Property Management *213.202.191.189 (User:213.202.191.189) (talk (User talk:213.202.191.189) • contribs (Special:Contributions 213.202.191.189) • block (Special:Blockip 213.202.191.189)) -- not vandalism in the usual sense.

Although Australia was remote from the main battlefronts, there was considerable '''Axis (Axis powers) naval activity in Australian waters''' during the Second World War (World War II). A total of 54 German (Kriegsmarine) and Japanese (Imperial Japanese Navy) warships and submarines entered Australian waters between 1940 and 1945 and attacked ships, ports and other targets. Among the best-known attacks are the sinking of HMAS ''Sydney'' (Battle between HMAS Sydney and HSK Kormoran) by a German raider in November 1941, the bombing of Darwin by Japanese naval aircraft (Bombing of Darwin (February 1942)) in February 1942, and the Japanese midget submarine attack on Sydney Harbour (attack on Sydney Harbour) in May 1942. In addition, many Allied (Allies of World War II) merchant ships were damaged or sunk off the Australian coast (List of ships sunk by Axis warships in Australian waters) by submarines and mine (naval mine)s. Japanese submarines also shelled (naval artillery) several Australian ports and submarine-based aircraft flew over several Australian capital cities (List of Australian capital cities). The early stages of the Special Period were defined by a general breakdown in transportation and agricultural sectors, fertilizer and pesticide stocks (both of those being manufactured primarily from petroleum derivatives), and widespread food shortages. Australian and other permaculturists (permaculture) arriving in Cuba at the time began to distribute aid and taught their techniques to locals, who soon implemented them in Cuban fields, raised beds, and urban rooftops across the nation. Organic agriculture was soon after mandated by the Cuban government, supplanting the old industrialized form of agriculture Cubans had grown accustomed to. Relocalization, permaculture, and innovative modes of mass transit had to be rapidly developed. For a time, waiting for a bus could take three hours, power outages could last up to sixteen hours, food consumption was cut back to one-fifth of their previous levels and the average Cuban lost about nine kilograms (twenty pounds) Commons:Category:Australia Wikipedia:Australia Dmoz:Regional Oceania Australia
