The 2018 Regional Telecommunications Independent Review Committee reviewed telecommunications services in regional, rural and remote parts of Australia.

The 2018 Regional Telecommunications Review is now complete and the Committee delivered its report to the Minister for Regional Services, Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie, on 30 September 2018.

The report examines how people use telecommunications services in regional, rural and remote parts of Australia and makes a series of recommendations on how regional communities can maximise the economic opportunities of digital technologies and services.

Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie tabled the report in Parliament on 4 December 2018. The Government is considering the report and will respond to the Committee’s recommendations in early 2019.

The Committee appointed to undertake the review was Mr Sean Edwards (Chair), Ms Wendy Duncan, Ms Johanna Plante, Ms Robbie Sefton, Ms Kylie Stretton and Mr Paul Weller.
