The independent 2011-12 Regional Telecommunications Review Committee report has been released. The Regional Telecommunications Independent Review Committee was established in 2005 and regularly examines telecommunications services in regional, rural and remote Australia.
The review found that:
- there is a “genuine desire across regional Australia” for the fast, affordable and reliable broadband services;
- the NBN will be a critical platform for the future growth of rural and regional Australian communities; and
- a commitment to uniform wholesale prices for the NBN is “essential”.
