'Working to keep the Sunshine Coast connected'

Invitation to attend a briefing

A briefing event on broadband, hosted by the Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts.

The uptake of broadband will have significant benefits for communities on the Sunshine Coast. This briefing is an opportunity to hear about, and ask questions on, what broadband can do for your community.

The purpose of the briefing is to provide key local stakeholders, such as yourself, with information that you can talk about with members of your community.

The briefing will cover Government initiatives under the National Broadband Strategy and focus on funding programs available to improve broadband services in rural and regional areas—including HiBIS (the Higher Bandwidth Incentive Scheme), Demand Aggregation Brokers and the Coordinated Communications Infrastructure Fund.

The two-hour briefing will include presentations by two senior officers from the Regional Communications Policy Branch and the Broadband Programs area of the department.
