Rural Connectivity Symposium 2015 gets underway today

Rural Connectivity Symposium 2015 gets underway today

After months of planning TUANZ and RHAANZ are delighted to announce that the Rural Connectivity Symposium kicks off in Wellington today.

“The event has sold out with over 150 people attending. The Symposium will be opened by the Communications Minister, The Hon. Amy Adams and has been well supported by sponsors across the health and ICT spectrum” said Craig Young, CEO of TUANZ.

“Rural satellite service provider, Wireless Nation, is the premier sponsor for our one-day event, which is a mixture of presentations and workshops.”

The aim of the day is to provide input to the Government’s process on how the $150 million new funding for improving rural broadband and mobile blackspots can be best utilised.

“The ability to gather a large group of rural stakeholders to provide a response to the Government’s request is a great opportunity for us to provide a strong unified response which reflects the voices of rural users of telecommunications services” said Michelle Thompson, CE, RHAANZ.
