What is broadband access like for those living and working in rural and remote communities?

In this session we will look at ways to boost broadband connectivity at a reasonable costs for those located outside the Ultra Fast Broadband footprint.

Topics that we will look to discuss are the progress of the Rural Broadband Initiative, what data exists on bradband services actually available to rural households, how 4G services enabled by 700MHz spectrum might improve wireless connectivity, and how rural communities can work together to improve their broadband coverage.
