Regional Telecommunications Review reaches Griffith

Published on 28 June 2018

The Griffith community is invited to attend an upcoming meeting to share their views about the quality and accessibility of internet and mobile phone services in the area.

The Regional Telecommunications Independent Review Committee is particularly interested in how regional communities can maximise the social and economic benefits that digital technology provides.

The Committee will be holding a meeting on 6 July from 10:00am – 11:30am.

The location will be Griffith Ex-Servicemen’s Club, 6/12 Jondaryan Avenue, Griffith.

Committee Chair, Sean Edwards, says he wants to hear a broad range of views about telecommunications, particularly about digital technology.

“We want to give regional communities a chance to stand up and tell us what’s working well and what needs improving,” Mr Edwards said.

“We know how important telecommunications services are to people in and around Griffith, and we want to understand how locals have adopted new and emerging technologies for business, farming, education and community activities.”

The Committee will report to the Minister for Regional Communications, Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie, by 30 September 2018.

Submissions will be accepted until 5 August 2018, 5.00pm (AEST).
