Digital connectivity

Whether it’s your mobile phone reception or your range of choice in internet service providers, Council wants to hear your views on and experiences with telecommunications and connectivity across the Pyrenees Shire.

Pyrenees Mayor Cr Robert Vance said Council is currently developing a Digital Connectivity Plan and it was essential to gather a wide range of views and experiences from all corners of the Shire to inform the research.

Cr Vance said Council knows that a lot of Pyrenees Shire experienced patchy, slow or non-existent mobile reception and internet coverage.

“The Digital Connectivity Plan will provide the research and data to help Council advocate to governments and tech organisations for high-quality digital connectivity right across the region,” he said.

“Whether you use mobile and internet services for work, study, business or personal reasons, we all know how important they are for daily life. Digital connectivity is an essential service, and our region needs significant investment and technological upgrades for our residents and ratepayers to prosper.”

To complete the Pyrenees Connectivity Survey, visit the Pyrenees Engagement Hub by Tuesday 9 July.

If you experience difficulties accessing the internet due to poor connection, pick up a hard-copy survey from the Avoca Information Centre, the Beaufort Resource Centre or the Beaufort Council office. You can also phone the Economic Development Team on 1300 797 363 for a survey and a reply paid envelope to return your completed survey.
