Communications report 2016–17

The ACMA Communications report 2016–17 draws on data from a range of sources including the ACMA’s own databases, information reported by industry, the ACMA’s research using third-party public sources, and commissioned surveys and analysis.

The Communications report 2016–17 fulfils multiple legislative obligations under the Australian Communications and Media Authority Act 2005 (ACMA Act). These include the requirement that the ACMA reports to the Minister for Communications on the telecommunications industry and matters affecting consumers of carriage services, conducts research on community attitudes to broadcasting programs, and advises the minister on service and industry trends in the broadcasting and internet industries and content services.

The key themes to emerge in this year’s Communications report are expanding digital connectivity, with an ever-increasing demand for, and use of, content and services.
