With there still being several mobile coverage blackspots in the Cowra Shire, residents are being encouraged to let the Federal Government know by participating in the Regional Telecommunications Review survey.

The Review, which takes place every three years, sees the Regional Telecommunications Independent Review Committee examine the experiences of people in regional, rural, and remote parts of Australia with telecommunications delivery, as well as considering the unique needs of First Nations communities.

Submissions and face-to-face consultations to date have provided feedback on a range of matters including the suitability of telecommunications during emergency situations, how emerging technologies could improve connectivity; and ways telecommunications can support regional development.

The short online survey provides a way for regional, rural and remote Australians to full committee.

“Access to reliable telecommunication is increasingly important for regional Australians – it is essential for keeping connected with family and friends as well as for business and access to health and education services,” Mrs MacTiernan said.

“We need to hear your stories about what is working and what is not. While we will be travelling to dozens of sample communities across the country, we want to provide an opportunity for every regional Australian to have their say. The online survey is an easy way you can participate.”

The online survey closes on 31 July 2024. To have your say visit https://www.infrastructure.gov.au/have-your-say/2024-regional-telecommunications-review
