Insight from: Robbie Sefton

She’s announced the start of a consultation process to investigate whether there are better ways to ensure all Australians are connected.

Robbie was a member of the Regional Telecommunications Independent Review Committee in 2018 so she joined Kristy Reading from ABC New England North West last week to discuss what this new agreement should look like and should the landline be scrapped?
