- Bridging the bush's digital divide
- Thomas, Julian; Rennie, Ellie
- The average house in a remote indigenous community uses about a third of the power consumed by a suburban home, is six times more prone to overcrowding, and probably doesn't have a home internet connection. Among the rare exceptions - at least for the internet - are 20 houses in the small communities of Kwale Kwale, Mungalawurru and Imangara in central Australia. With federal funding, these households have been given computers, internet access and training, and receive regular visits and advice.
