Australian Government delivers better connectivity in Murrumbateman

Dept of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications

The community of Murrumbateman will be able to access better mobile and broadband connectivity with the completion of projects delivered under the Australian Government’s Regional Connectivity Program.

The new services will enable the uptake of new agricultural and business technologies for a number of wineries, as well as improving access to telehealth and education services for residents.

The Australia Government has contributed $150,000 to the Murrumbateman Fixed Wireless Network project, along with contributions from BullRoarer Networks Pty Ltd.

Through the Regional Connectivity Program, BullRoarer Networks Pty Ltd has deployed a fixed wireless broadband and VoIP network on the eastern side of Murrumbateman.

The Regional Connectivity Program is funding the delivery of ‘place-based’ telecommunications infrastructure projects to improve digital connectivity across regional, rural and remote Australia.

This project was delivered under Round 1 of the program, which is providing $117 million for 130 projects across Australia.

The Australian Government’s Better Connectivity for Rural and Regional Australia plan is supporting regional, rural, and remote communities get connected and bridge the digital divide.
