Rural telecommunications policy reform

This publication summarises the issues and points to possible changes in rural telecommunications policy. The purpose was not to re-visit the usual arguments about the cost of the universal service obligation, or the comparison between metropolitan areas and remote areas. It simply aims to draw together clear thinking about the issues, in the hope of a better outcome for users and providers of telecommunications.

Following the common practice used by Network Insight, we first prepared a research paper, then hosted a round table discussion by experts from different viewpoints. The project was possible because Chris Dalton kindly agreed to give Network Insight and the public the benefit of his years of experience through the research paper.
