If you live or work in regional, rural or remote areas of Australia we want to hear from you as part of the 2021 Regional Telecommunications Review.

14 July 2021

The Regional Telecommunications Independent Review Committee (RTIRC) has released its Issues Paper and first scheduled public meetings for the 2021 Regional Telecommunications Review.

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.

The Issues Paper sets out key areas of interest for the Review.

First and foremost is the adequacy of the telecommunications service people in regional, rural and remote Australia use on a day to day basis.

The Committee is also focussing on changing trends in the use, the impact of Government policies and programs, insights from COVID-19, emerging technologies, service reliability, regional development, coordination between tiers of government and the quality of consumer information.

The RTIRC is seeking a wide range of views and experiences and is undertaking a consultation process with communities and local stakeholders.

You can read the paper and make a submission in response on the Have your say webpage.

Submissions close: Thursday, 30 September 2021
