Stakeholder consultation is underway.

Stakeholder consultation is an important part of the Regional Telecommunications Review.

The Committee is required to consult publicly under its establishing laws and Terms of Reference.

The Committee has commenced its stakeholder consultation schedule, providing an opportunity for people living and working in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia to share their views and experiences using telecommunications services in their area. 

Further information about consultations in your region will be available soon.

Issues Paper

Interested individuals, communities and organisations have an opportunity to participate by providing a response to the 2024 Regional Telecommunications Review Issues Paper.

The Issues Paper sets out the key areas of interest for the Review and a number of questions you can use to develop your response.

The Issues Paper and the process for submission are available on the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts' Have Your Say page.

The Committee will give appropriate consideration to the confidentiality and privacy of material provided to it, but it is important to make clear if material is considered to be confidential.
