Stakeholder consultation is underway.

If you live or work in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia, the Regional Telecommunications Independent Review Committee would like to hear your views and experiences using telecommunications services in your area.

The 2024 Regional Telecommunications Review is undertaken every 3 years and is an important step to inform recommendations to the government on improvements to connectivity for rural, regional and remote parts of Australia.

You can have your say by making a submission online, by completing a short survey or by participating in a face-to-face consultation.


Take the survey

You can share your views by completing a short, 10-minute survey. Responses will help the Committee develop its final report.

Online submission

Submit online feedback

Interested individuals, communities and organisations can have their say by providing an online submission in 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 consider the confidentiality and privacy of material provided, but it is important to make it clear if material in your submission is confidential.
