You are looking for ICON Perhaps it was the *awful* acronym that beat you
In what must be a first the Aussie government is a step ahead of what is needed. Basically Canberra (the Nations capital & home of more government than you can poke a stick at) has a wonderful fiber network called ICON which happens to consist of dark fiber that is physically patched between agencies. Now that doesn't mean the QKD is a famously good idea since we already have really well thought through key distribution techniques, but it's not the lack of the network that will stop it.
I'm glad I am not the only person to have suffered at the hands of Dulles Immigration.
From discussions with various people - you get that if you make the mistake of landing there... (or being diverted there like I was...)
