How did the National Broadband Network (NBN) work for you during COVID-19?
Internet use has become even more important during the pandemic, and the Parliamentary Joint Committee on the National Broadband Network – of which I am co-chair – wants to know about your experience of the NBN during this time.
Not everyone has it yet, but if you do, tell us your broadband experience throughout COVID-19, whether you’re an individual, a community group or you have a small to medium businesses.
You’ve got until September 15, and can find out more here.

Cuts to your ABC
It’s a fact that some Blue Mountains and Hawkesbury residents did not have any access to communication services during the summer bushfire emergency – no mobile coverage, no internet, no landlines, just a battery-powered AM radio broadcasting the ABC. That’s how they stayed up-to-date on the crisis.
Now, cuts by the Morrison Government have resulted in the announcement that the ABC will shed 250 jobs, axe the 7.45am radio bulletin, and make other savings measures.
I will be hosting a virtual town hall event to talk about the future of the ABC with Shadow Minister for Communications Michelle Rowland shortly. Details will be available on Facebook soon.
