The Arafura Games began in 1991 as the Arafura Sports Festival with 1500 participants from seven countries competing in 13 sports. By the time the eighth Games were held in 2005, participation had soared to more than 3,000 athletes representing 32 nations, with competition in 30 sports
. Over the years, tens of thousands of athletes, spectators, officials and volunteers have been involved.
Maxon Australia provided the Arafura Games organisers with 15 Telstra Turbo Modemsâ„˘ to fulfil their communications needs.

CeBIT was a great success for Maxon this year. We went out to make it bigger and better than ever before! As can be seen in the photos below, we built a great new stand, and had more people there than in previous years.
There was much interest shown in the products available now (the Telstra Turbo Modem and the BigPond Wireless USB modems), as well as lots of excitement over the forthcoming Docking Station, and the ModMax.
