Indigenous Remote Communications Association (IRCA)

IRCA is the peak body for remote Indigenous media and communications. IRCA urges that remote Indigenous communities are connected using terrestrial broadband, rather than satellite, to enable high-speed two-way applications (videoconferencing, digital media distribution, on-line archives etc). Access facilities, relevant applications and affordability are the key to remote engagement. Effective communications will support sustainability of remote communities and avoid a widening digital divide.

The continuing need for telephony needs to be addressed by the NBN, particularly mobile telephony as a platform for communications, internet access, media creation and sharing.
