NT Gov and Telstra strike $30 million deal

Will enhance mobile phone and fixed broadband services for remote communities

The Northern Territory Government and Telstra have signed a three-year $30 million agreement to enhance mobile phone and fixed broadband services for remote communities.

The installation of mobile phone towers and equipment will provide a 3G mobile service, while fixed broadband will enable people access services at their homes and businesses through their land lines.

Both the Northern Territory Government and Telstra are jointly developing a priority list of communities for the program taking into account population, location, existing infrastructure, costs, logistics and community needs.

Chief minister, Adam Giles, said the program plays a significant role in further developing northern Australia.

“This remote telecommunications infrastructure program will bring vital services to the bush and improve the lives of thousands of people living and working in remote communities throughout the Territory,” he said.

The program builds on a previous $5.76 million project, where Telstra provided phone and internet services for 13 remote communities, which was completed last year.
