THE price of communications is an ongoing stress for many older Australians. With broadband now an almost essential service to stay connected, it’s important that there is no Australian left offline because they can’t afford a service.

An adequate and unlimited broadband service should be offered at a wholesale price of $20 per month by the NBN to households receiving government financial support.

It is CPSA’s view that a Pensioner Internet Rebate should be introduced, but recognises that it’s not just pensioners struggling with internet. For that reason, CPSA supports the No Australian Left Offline campaign by the Australian Communication Consumer Action Network (ACCAN).
