Schools, health clinics and local government facilities in remote locations will soon be able to get broadband via the NBN's Interim Satellite Service (ISS).
The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, Senator Stephen Conroy, announced the expansion of eligibility for the ISS today.
The new criteria mean around 250 schools, 800 health clinics and 200 local government facilities in the remotest parts of Australia will be able to access satellite broadband at wholesale speeds of 6Mbps downstream and 1Mbps upstream.

I live in rural Victoria in a small township of about 700 people called Dereel. It has a mix of traditional Aussie bush land and undulating green fields full of grazing sheep.
It's a nice place to live if you like seeing a sky full of stars at night, clean air, lots of space and nothing but the sounds of nature to wake you in the morning (although the cockatoos do sometimes push their luck!)
What we don't have is a lot of services people in large towns or cities get.
