We are hosting a Regional Connectivity Program (RCP) noticeboard to facilitate linkages between telecommunications carriers and communities.

Potential telecommunications projects can now be added to the noticeboard.

State, territory and local governments, regional development authorities, industry, business and community groups, not-for-profits and First Nations community controlled organisations and other interested entities are invited to add their potential telecommunications project to the noticeboard.

Telecommunications carriers are invited to take a look at the project noticeboard. If there are potential projects you wish to develop into an application for the RCP, we encourage you to contact the proponent directly to develop your potential application.

Projects do not have to be on the noticeboard to be eligible for the RCP. The noticeboard will be online until the closing date for RCP applications.

If you would like more information about the RCP, you can see the draft program Guidelines which are open for consultation until 13 March 2020.

Mount Isa City Council and Mount Isa Water Board QLD Mount Isa Lake Moondarra Lake Moondarra is 15Km out of Mt Isa and is a town water resource as well as a favourite place for families to picnic and to indulge in all water sports including barra fishing. The whole lake area has no mobile reception and therefore limits the use of this facility for residents who need to stay in contactable range for work. This is a shovel ready project.
