“We commend you and your organisation for the positive steps that you have taken to nurture consumer-focussed initiatives, and look forward to continuing to work together to ensure communication services are trusted, inclusive and available for all.”

We’d like to thank ACCAN for recognising our efforts to improve communications for people living in remote parts of Australia, and to all our customers across rural, regional and remote Australia for your continued support.

We believe that a fair Australia means equal access to communications for all, no matter who you are or where you choose to live. We will continue our efforts to improve connectivity for remote Australian communities, and advocate for better connectivity for all.
