About our program

The Regional Digital Connectivity program will ensure families and businesses across regional NSW have access to better mobile, internet and digital services. 

The program will create connected, empowered and prosperous communities by leveraging technology and innovation.

Through large-scale investment with the telecommunications industry, we will develop and implement sustainable solutions to improve regional mobile coverage, and deliver faster and more reliable internet connectivity, prioritising the most underserved areas of the state.

The Regional Digital Connectivity program aims to bridge the digital divide between metropolitan centres and regional areas, to drive economic growth, social equity, and ensure everyone in our regions can take advantage of new technology and digital opportunities.
