Gee Bees Media Pty Ltd is planning an application to the Federal Government’s Regional Connectivity Program (RCP) to provide an expansion of their existing fixed wireless internet network in areas within Corangamite Shire. Proposed works include the deployment of new access points to service customers unable to access adequate connectivity and upgrades to existing sites with newer technology to replace aged equipment and technology. These expansion and upgrade projects would not be possible without the support of the RCP, and wouldn’t be undertaken within the next 3 years.

A key criteria for the application is to address areas of priority for the local community, and we would appreciate community input to demonstrate the necessity for internet connectivity to businesses and residents in our region.

We know that the provision of high-speed internet access in Corangamite Shire is highly important for progressing economic development in the Shire. Access to high-speed internet is important in attracting new businesses and residents to the region. High-speed internet access also opens opportunities for the development of new micro start-up businesses. Further, leveraging high-speed internet to deliver visitor information is also an important consideration for economic development in Corangamite Shire.

If you can contribute to our application, please get in touch. This may be in the form of a letter of support, a case study, or a financial co-contribution.
