Regional Connectivity Project

The Regional Connectivity Program (RCP) is an Australian Commonwealth Government grants program funding the delivery of ‘place-based’ telecommunications infrastructure projects which aim to improve digital connectivity across regional, rural, and remote Australia. Field Solutions has been awarded funding under RCP1 to deliver 16 networks and one additional network under RCP2.

The FSG Engineering & Infrastructure team have been busy travelling the countryside undertaking “Site Caravans” in search of suitable locations to build our towers.

Thanks to the support of so many regional councils and landowners, we have much acquisition underway. The weather, however, is playing its part, especially on the east coast of Australia, which continues to cop bucket loads. It doesn’t help with undertaking activities such as geotechnical analysis, nor does it aid in constructing towers. It’s not just the hole we dig for the foundations, filling with water; it’s ensuring the access tracks we need to use for construction (and adjacent paddocks) don’t become a quagmire – especially given that we share these with landowners who need them all year round. It’s a challenge, but finding solutions is what we’re all about.

Our team is always here to answer your questions, so please feel free to reach out and drop an email to govprograms@fieldsolutions-group.com, and one of the team will get back to you.
