ACCAN's engagement with rural, regional and remote consumers has continually highlighted the importance of improving mobile communications outside of urban centres. Better mobile coverage will yield a range of benefits to regional and remote Australia including improved business opportunities, better access to essential services and enhanced safety and well-being.

The presentations and transcripts of all M-Enabling Australasia 2013 sessions are now available. M-Enabling Australasia 2013, held on 14-15 August 2013, brought together the who's who of disability advocacy, policy makers, manufacturers, developers, service providers and consumers to discuss how to make technology more accessible for people with disability and older consumers.

Mobile technology is a potential game changer for people with disability and many older people; providing access and inclusion through usable, accessible and affordable mobile equipment and services.

ACCAN would like to invite our members, financial counsellors and others to attend a "Your Rights" workshop being hosted by ACCAN Chief Executive, Teresa Corbin. Ms Corbin will explain what rights Australian phone and internet customers in relation to common issues such as bill shock, mobile phone and internet contracts and how to make an effective complaint.
