Australian universities formed the Australian Academic and Research
Network (AARNet) in 1989 and now has 38 members. Along the way AARNet
obtained a telecommunications carrier license and provided voice calls
between universities: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AARNet
AARnet pioneered the Internet in Australia, for government and industry,
as well as academia.
