Tasmanian communications provider TasmaNet TasmaNet has received a grant from the Federal Government Regional Connectivity Program to fund the upgrade of the existing communications network at theTahune Airwalk and Warra Ecosystem Observatory in southern Tasmania.

TasmaNet will work directly with the Tahune Airwalk and Warra Ecosystem Observatory to undertake the upgrade of the existing network.

TasmaNet CEO Rob Vernon said, “The Tahune Airwalk is a major draw card for the Huon Region, and currently there is only a small area onsite where WiFi is available. From a tourism perspective, this limits the amount of promotion visitors can share online.”.

“During the devastating 2019 bushfires in the region, the lack of communication coverage around the site also hindered coordinating an effective response.

“Better connectivity is a huge safety benefit for the area, along with opening doors to new ICT technologies, including a new communication service at the Warra Ecosystem Observatory which will enable the facility to more efficiently collect and distribute important ecological research data,”

“We’d like to thank the RCP Grant Committee and the Federal Government for realising the importance of this regional project,” Vernon concluded.

The funding is part of the second round of Regional Connectivity Program Grants from the Federal Government.

The grants were announced on Thursday at an event attended by the Minister for Regional Health, Regional Communications and Local Government Mark Coulton, Assistant Minister for Forestry and Fisheries Senator Jonathan Duniam, Tahune Airwalk Director Ken Stronach and Dr Timothy Wardlaw of the ARC Centre for Forest Value.
