Telecommunication services have always been essential for public health and safety, but today they are a necessity for participation in civic society and transacting with government, for business operations, productivity and growth. ACCAN’s Pre-Budget Submission 2017-18 discusses market gaps and gives recommendations on telecommunications initiatives that will benefit consumers including:

  • Expansion of the Mobile Black Spot Program
  • Continued funding for the Universal Service Obligation
  • A review of the Centrelink Telephone Allowance
  • Funding for an independent broadband monitoring program
  • Funding for audio description services on ABC and ABC iView
