The Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) has urged local governments, especially those in regional areas, to participate in the Federal Government’s 2024 Regional Telecommunications review.

Former Western Australian Minister for Regional Development, Agriculture and Food, Alannah MacTiernan, has been appointed to lead the next review.  

Ms MacTeirnan will be supported by the 2024 Regional Telecommunications Independent review Committee.

The review is undertaken every three years and is an opportunity for Australians – and councils – in rural, regional and remote communities to share views and experiences of telecommunications services.

As part of the review, the committee will examine how people in regional, rural and remote parts of Australia do not have equitable access to telecommunications services compared with urban areas.

Public consultation will begin in April, with the Committee’s final report due to the government by December 2024.
