Regional phone services have been thrown into the spotlight again, following Nationals deputy leader David Littleproud slamming Australia’s largest provider – Telstra.

This week Minister Littleproud called out Telstra saying the company's leadership has turned their back on basic services in the bush, putting lives at risk.

While many locals have cited local mobile phone blackspots, the Federal Ag Minister highlighted the shocking state of some of Australia’s regional landline services, adding further a lack of reliability in some newer wireless services.

Minister Littleproud continued by saying  “Telstra is hiding behind national averaging of complaint resolutions that relies on numbers in urban and suburban Australia"
