Federal Government calling for submissions on regional telecommunications

The 2018 Regional Telecommunications Review has released an issues paper and is calling for public submissions from individuals, businesses and community groups based in regional and remote Australia.

The Regional Telecommunications Independent Review Committee is established every three years to undertake an independent review of telecommunications services in regional, rural and remote Australia.

With online services now increasingly essential for everyday tasks, the Committee wants to get a comprehensive understanding of any issues communities are facing, and the opportunities for maximising the benefits of communications services in regional Australia.

The Committee will report to Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie, Minister for Regional Communications, by 30 September 2018.

You can share your views by making a comment using the online form or lodging a formal submission by 5 August 2018 on our Have Your Say page.

The Committee will also be hosting public consultation sessions in several regional areas across the country over an eight-week period. The session times will be published online once confirmed.
