Australia Telecom's Broadband (Part 2, 1992)

Part 2 of the 1992 Australia Telecom concept video Broadband demonstrates teleconferencing via videophone, as well as encrypted data transfer.

Oh, and scary metal walkways of the future. Don't forget the walkways.

Stay tuned for part 3, coming soon.

The map screen showing the encrypted conference call being established made some distinctly Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy-esque sound effects.

1992 you say? That metal walkway looks like something out of an 80s music video. I'm half expecting a big-haired Bonnie Tyler to strut down it.

Can I assume that Australian readers have been queuing up to (a) laugh at this because (b) the state of broadband in Australia is absolutely parlous?
