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.
