SuperGrid
Telecommunications
Program

The SuperGrid Telecommunications Program is a joint initiative between Powerlink and QCN to improve access to high-speed internet and mobile phone coverage to regional areas.

Regional Connectivity Program

The Regional Connectivity Program (the RCP) is a grants program provided by the Australian Government, funding the delivery of ‘place-based’ telecommunications infrastructure projects to improve digital connectivity across regional, rural, and remote Australia.

QCN has applied for funding under Rounds 1 and 2 of the RCP, to deliver regional connectivity programs to improve digital speeds for Queensland homes and businesses.

Round 1

Bluff, Duaringa & Dingo

Under Round 1 of the Regional Connectivity Program, the Australian Government provided funding for our team to connect high-capacity broadband to the towns of Bluff, Duaringa, Dingo and their surrounding areas.

Round 2

Pioneer Valley

Under Round 2 of the Regional Connectivity Program, the Australian Government provided funding for our team to connect high-capacity broadband to towns in the western region of the Mackay Regional Council area.

Introducing innovation and flexibility

To Break the Digital Divide, QCN works with retail service providers, such as the Country Broadband Network, to enable innovation and flexibility in regional Queensland networks.

Through the support of the Queensland Government, who has opened access to digital infrastructure that was originally built for Queensland’s electricity network, QCN can offer competitive prices to these retail providers, ensuring customer satisfaction and establishing greater internet access.
