Digital Strategies

CeRDI has worked with Victorian regional local governments to develop practical strategies to harness the opportunities of next generation broadband for their communities. These strategies have been developed with Lateral Plains and were informed by community consultation, surveys, case studies and the economic and social strategies of the regions. The implementation of these strategies has proved successful in shaping local governments' actions and positioning the regions as digital ready.
