NewSat submits to regional review

 

Australian satellite service provider, NewSat has submitted a lengthy submission on regional telecommunications to the Regional Telecommunications
Independent Review Committee (RTIRC).

The submission is in response to the ‘Discussion Paper’ issued by the RTIRC in October this year and consists of a brief introduction and background on the role of satellite services in meeting communications needs in remote Australia, said Adrian Ballintine CEO of NewSat.

“NewSat has experience in serving the communications needs of Australians in remote and rural areas, together with those whose needs are itinerant in nature,” he said. “Just as telecommunications policy has been accused of generating a lack of equity between the city and the bush, so too can regional telecommunications.”

The paper includes a recommendation and solution-set for delivering broadband communications to Australians and Australian land mass not covered under either FttN or OPEL current proposals.

A full review of the submission can be found at; http://www.newsat.com.au/cpa/htm/htm_download_listing.asp?page_id=30.
