What 's  New

Fact Sheet - USO Report 2017

The USO is the universal obligation for every Australian to have access to a fixed landline. The PC Report findings indicate the need for a USO is declining given the increasing reliance of mobile phones and the roll out of the nbn, which has a provision for a voice service. ICPA Qld does not dispute that in some instances the relevance of the USO is declining, however, for the 90,000 premises across Australia who are largely in the satellite footprint and have no mobile phone coverage, access to a fixed landline is paramount.

Productivity Commission Fails Rural and Remote

The Isolated Children's Parents Association is extremely disappointed that the final Report by the Productivity Commission into the Telecommunications USO has failed to address the importance of a fixed landline for many residents in rural Australia.

Budget a Mixed Bag for Rural & Remote Students

The Isolated Children's Parents Association of Qld welcomes key funding allocations around teacher attraction, infrastructure planning and quality VET delivery, but there is disappointment at no funding to ensure better connectivity in rural and remote schools.
