Digital Connectivity Survey
Are poor internet connections or mobile phone drops outs impacting on your business or lifestyle?
The Riverina and Murray Joint Organisation, along with its member Councils, are collaborating to identify what connectivity issues exist.
We want to know what your experiences are with things like mobile phone blackspots, internet speed and how satisfied you are with your service.
We’ve developed a short questionnaire which should only take a few minutes to complete.
With your help, the Riverina and Murray Joint Organisation will use the findings to create a picture of not only current needs, but where we would like to be in the future and present this to State and Federal Governments. The survey closes Friday 26th July.
