The Australian Telecommunications Network, which is operated by the Government through the Postmaster-General's Department, is among the world's more advanced systems. Telephone, telegraph, and television services are provided to virtually all settled areas of the vast Australian continent. In very sparsely settled areas, outpost radio telephone services provide for essential communication. The manner in which the Australian network is being extended and modernized to meet the demands of the future is described. Reference is made to Australia's overseas telecommunications services and to the measures taken in the national system design to ensure compatibility with the world system.
