The Regional Telecommunications Review Committee has released an issues paper which provides an outline of key interest areas and invites submissions from individuals, businesses, peak bodies and other interested organisations.
The committee will review telecommunications services in regional, rural and remote parts of Australia. As part of the review, the committee will:
- consider how regional communities can maximise the economic benefits of digital technologies
- consider how regional consumers use their broadband services and how they might derive more benefits, and
- analyse the coverage outcomes achieved through the Mobile Black Spot Program, and examine the extent of the existing gaps in mobile coverage in regional Australia.
Information on how to have your say and participate in the committee’s public consultations is available on the Consultation page.
Submissions close Sunday 5 August 2018.
