Corporate entry Cable and Wireless (C&W)
Cable & Wireless was one of Australia's first telecommunications companies. "In 1947 the Overseas Telecommunications Commission (Australia) was formed to take over from Cable & Wireless. From the 1960s to the 1980s, Cable & Wireless' involvement with Australia focused on major international coaxial cable projects such as COMPAC, SEACOM and ANZCAN. In the 1990's, the formation of Optus established a second telecommunications network and by 1994 its network comprised of over 5,000 kms of fibre optic cable."
