Telstra has been an advocate for regional and rural Australia for more than 100 years.

Telstra area general manager Chris Taylor said Telstra was passionate about making a difference for regional communities across the country.

“We are listening to what’s important to our customers and stakeholders,’’ Mr Taylor said.

“Together with the National Farmers Federation, we see an amazing opportunity to grow Australia’s agricultural industry from $60 billion to a $100 billion a year industry by 2030.

“We are working with the NFF on the Talking 2030 discussion paper, which looks at the long term policies, ideas, technologies and innovation required to power Australia’s agricultural sector towards our shared 2030 ambitions.

“From the IoT (Internet of Things) to 5G, to our involvement in the Federal Government’s Mobile Blackspot Program and our extensive regional mobile network investment, we’ve been busy laying the foundations for a brilliant connected world that supports our Australian way of life.’’

Mr Taylor invited visitors to the Henty Machinery Field Days to drop by the Telstra site.

“Visit the Telstra marquee and experience state-of-the-art technology that will connect and provide you with the power to grow your business and enrich your home,’’ he said.

“Telstra has been a proud sponsor of the Henty field days for many years, giving Riverina locals a sneak peek into the future of keeping connected.

“Visitors will be able to check out the Gateway Frontier modem, get hands on with the Satellite Iridium Go and see how the Telstra Mobile Smart Antenna and Telstra Cel-Fi Go work.’’
