Connectivity in the NT

You are here

Connectivity to internet and coverage for mobile phones are one of the main challenges for people living and running a business in the bush. The NTCA’s policy on telecommunications in the bush is that our members should have access to a reliable, high speed broadband delivered by wireless, satellite or fixed line, comparable to the speed and efficiency of services delivered to urban, residential and business users, and that all members should have access to reliable and modern telephone and data services equivalent to services delivered in urban areas.

The Northern Territory Cattlemen’s Association (NTCA) have joined a group of like-minded advocacy groups that have come together to end the data drought by forming the Regional, Rural and Remote Communications Coalition (RRRCC) to champion better communications services for producers and small businesses living in rural, remote or regional areas.

The Isolated Children's Parents' Association (many of whom are also NTCA members) are also fighting this issue to ensure better access to education for the children of NT Pastoralists.
