ACCAN recently submitted to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts (the Department) on the Request for Information (RFI) – National Audit of Mobile Coverage. In addition to ACCAN’s comments on the RFI Response Form, we further recommended that the Department:

  • Undertake an audit and develop a visualisation tool of connectivity infrastructure to help identify gaps and strategically target investment to the most needed areas.
  • Require tenderers to expand the audit of mobile coverage to areas outside the arterial routes used by Australia Post’s vehicles, such as the external territories of Christmas Island, the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, and Norfolk Island, specifically including analysis of coverage, capacity, and quality of service.
