Rural Parents Struggle With Internet Infrastructure As They Home School Children During Coronavirus Lockdown
TARPOLY CREEK, AUSTRALIA – APRIL 05: Alessia Bowman, 10, Sybella Bowman, 12, and Oliver Bowman, 8, do school work at their family home and cattle property on April 05, 2020 in Tarpoly Creek, Australia. Emily Bowman, mother of three, believes the current internet situation highlights “the great divide between city and country.” She is currently paying $400 per month for a recently expanded package and considering hiring a space in Tamworth (100 km away from her home) so she can access better internet to home school her children. ” We are in the technological dark ages in rural Australia, the service is expensive and unreliable”, stated Emily. As boarding schools have closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many rural families are now teaching their children from home. With no access to high-speed fixed-line connections they rely solely on satellite internet which is proving problematic and costly, particularly for the use of streaming and video apps such as Zoom – a prominent component in most online teaching.
