Offline copies of the questionnaire are available at the public library.

Questionnaire closes July 15th

Have you used a smart app like the COVID safe check-in or had a smart water meter installed on your property? Who owns your data? You? The government? The manufacturer of the app? Take the questionnaire and learn about your smart tech rights.

We are looking for residents of Dubbo, Gilgandra, Narromine, Wellington, and Peak Hill to complete the questionnaire.

This questionnaire provides consumer awareness for regional and rural consumers of smart technologies, including rights in relation to remote data monitoring, and how smart technologies will be implemented in your town. Feel free to share this with anyone you think may be interested who lives in one of the towns mentioned above. A lot of research and policy focuses on smart technology in cities, and we hope to put some focus on smart tech in rural and regional areas.

If you complete the whole questionnaire you can go in the draw to win a $200 JB Hi-Fi or Woolworths voucher.

If you have already completed the questionnaire, great! Ask a mate or a family member to complete it.

Holly Randell-Moon from the School of Indigenous Australian Studies at the Dubbo campus of Charles Sturt University is running this project. The project is funded by the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN). Consumer understandings of smart technologies and their applications in North West NSW regional and rural communities will provide information on the digital experiences and smart literacy of regional and rural telecommunications consumers to better understand how smart services can be applied.

Dubbo Regional Council is currently soliciting community feedback on their Smart Cities Strategy. If you’re in the mood for further questionnaires, please click here.
