ISPWATCH.COM.AU DEBUTS AUSTRALIA'S FIRST NEWS, ANALYSIS AND ONLINE COMMUNITY DESTINATION DEVOTED TO ISPS AND ASPS(Melbourne, August 14, 2000) - The launch of australia.internet.com's "ISPWatch.com.au"
(http://www.ispwatch.com.au), Australia's first Internet news site specifically targeted at Australia's fast-growing Internet service provider industry, will give ISPs and ASPs an important new weapon in the race to stay abreast of developments in the highly dynamic market in which they compete.
Updated regularly throughout the week and distributed weekly via e-mail to more than 3,500 members of Australia's ISP and ASP communities, ISPWatch.com.au features exclusive coverage of the issues and events that are shaping the Internet industry both here and abroad. Feature articles cover a broad spectrum of issues, ranging from important new policies and technical developments to global trends and their impact on the local Internet market.
"We've designed ISPWatch.com.au specifically to meet the information needs of Australia's ISP industry, which until now has lacked a relevant news source and a cohesive community in which to express its views," said David Braue, Managing Editor of ISPWatch.com.au. "ISPWatch not only covers the events of most importance to ISPs, but will always go the extra mile by providing deeper analysis of the impact of those events on the local ISP and ASP communities."
"We also encourage our members to contribute their own thoughts on any of the stories posted online," he continued, "and look forward to working with them to position ISPWatch as Australia's preeminent online community for Internet Service Providers, Application Service Providers and anyone else harnessing the power of the Internet to help their own customers work and play better."
ISPWatch.com.au is part of australia.internet.com, which provides uniquely Australian Internet industry news and analysis.
