THE digital drought in the bush is hurting businesses and communities and the County Women’s Association has a message for government – it’s about fairness.

“I can understand there are limitations because of where we live,” said CWA president and Rowena resident Tanya Cameron.

“But you can’t tell me that I or anyone else deserve less data and more cost than someone who lives in the city.”

Government needs to reverse the service gap between metropolitan and regional areas, or abandon the pretence of a push to shift Australia’s urban population away from the coast, Mrs Cameron said.

How can we expect people to move to the bush to operate business if the internet isn’t available?

Well she is right isn't she cannot argue with that?

“How can we expect people to move to the bush to operate business if the internet isn’t available?,” she asked.- a question we in the bush have always asked and never got an answer . Businesses are put off going to the bush because of it.

Population could move to the bush where the air is clean and kids can walk to school.

Work in the home office with true high speed broadband, like 1Gbps:1Gbps. Commute to work once a week or once a fortnight (regional rail and aviation would benefit too.) For rural people—telehealth would mean they can stay in their house, in their community etc with real telemonitoring of progress after treatment etc.

E.g. someone who loves the Flinders Ranges could move to Pt Augusta, someone who enjoys fishing anywhere on York Pen or east coast of Eyre Pen etc etc. Or just move out of Adelaide to Murray Bridge or Tailem Bend say, just an hour from Adelaide by car.

Former iiNet CEO Michael Malone to take the seat on the GimpCo board vacated by Hacket.

Why bother? GimpCo will keep on its stupid FTTN/HFC path and Malone will be silenced if he speaks out like Hackett was.
