It’s never been more important to be connected – for family, community, work and safety.

The Victorian Government is fast-tracking better mobile coverage and broadband across the state through the $550 million Connecting Victoria program.

Connecting Victoria will enable more businesses to take advantage of digital opportunities with more reliable, better value broadband in more places, including popular shopping streets and business parks.

The program will focus on getting more Victorians access to business-grade broadband and upgrading mobile coverage, improving 4G mobile coverage, helping more places become 5G ready, and improving access to safety information during bushfires and other emergencies.

Locations to receive upgrades or new infrastructure will be announced throughout this year and in 2022. Visit our Projects page for updates.

The Victorian Government will encourage the Commonwealth Government and telecommunications providers to co-invest in the delivery of new infrastructure.
