The Australian Government has announced the commencement of the 2018 Regional Telecommunications Review, to be conducted by the Regional Telecommunications Independent Review Committee.
Submissions to the 2018 Review Issues Paper are invited from members of the public here before 5 August 2018.
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.
Face-To-Face community consultations will be held on 5 and 6 July 2018 in Wagga Wagga and Griffith NSW.
Submissions close 5 August 2018.
