"Improving public access to the internet in remote indigenous communities was a key recommendation of the Glasson Review of regional telecommunications and I am delighted that the Commonwealth, States and the Northern Territory have agreed to work together on this important initiative," said Conroy.
In addition to providing access, the agreement also provides for training in basic computer and internet skills.
Up to 120 communities may benefit from the initiative. The delivery of access and training services should start in early 2010.
"Internet access is an increasingly important tool for communication, education, and economic opportunity and it is important that Indigenous people in remote parts of Australia have access to these benefits," Conroy said.
