MAY 2, 2018: A REVIEW into regional telecommunications is kicking off soon, and it provides the ideal opportunity to have your say on telecommunications services and the issues that affect them.
Minister for Regional Communications, Senator Bridget McKenzie has announced that the 2018 Regional Telecommunciations Review will examine communication issues in regional, rural and remote areas.
This review is conducted every three years to examine regional telecommunication services across the country.
Six members have been appointed to the Committee: Mr Sean Edwards (Chair), Ms Wendy Duncan, Ms Johanna Plante, Ms Robbie Sefton, Ms Kylie Stretton and Mr Paul Weller. They bring a wealth of experience in the telecommunications sector and an extensive understanding of regional and remote Australia.
Telecommunications is so vital to our daily lives, and it’s certainly an issue that people speak to me about regularly. This review provides the opportunityto have your say about current concerns and what you’d like to see in the future.
The Committee will shortly call for submissions and will undertake public consultations in regional and rural areas later in the year. The Committee is expected to report to government by the end of September 2018.
