Abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate the research question “How effectively is Federal telecommunications policy addressing the current and emerging telecommunications needs of schools in the Northern Territory (NT)?” More specifically the study aimed to investigate the question “To what extent are rural and remote schools in the NT able to access the Internet by the existing telecommunications infrastructure?” Schools from the urban, rural and remote areas of the NT were the focus of the study. The study examined the growth in Internet access by urban and rural/remote schools in the NT in the three year period since schools established their initial Internet connection in 1996. A survey and case study methodology identified a number of emerging issues in the utilisation of the Internet in NT schools.
