Victorians have voiced their need for better mobile and broadband connections to improve economic growth and community safety.
Connecting Victoria has released its engagement report. Through community engagement, the Connecting Victoria program received 11,000 survey responses and more than 110 formal submissions. About 300 people also attended 13 roundtables held across the state.
The engagement report shows connectivity challenges exist right across Victoria, including the need to better support remote working and studying and telehealth, and to improve service quality.
These insights from the engagement process will be used as part of the decision-making process for the $550 million Connecting Victoria program, which is fast-tracking mobile and broadband connectivity across the state.
Locations to receive upgrades or new infrastructure will be announced throughout this year.
