Despite recent improvements, there still remains a considerable digital divide between Australians living in regional, rural and remote areas compared to those living in metro communities. With COVID-19 accelerating the movement of education, work, and essential services to online, the need for all Australians to have affordable access to data and devices – and the skills to use them – is more important than ever.

Our submission for the 2021 Regional Telecommunications Review highlights our recommendations to improve digital inclusion in regional, rural and remote areas and build more digitally resilient communities.
