The NSW Treasurer is allocating half-a-billion dollars over four years to boost digital connectivity and improve internet services in regional areas. It's an effort "to make sure not only does our Budget deliver for today, but it also builds for generations to come,” he said.

 This investment scheme is focusing on contributing to the Black Spot program. Perrottet is attempting to invest $518.8 million over four years for the Regional Digital Connectivity program.

The initial benefits will be seen in Dubbo and Wagga Wagga, where data hubs will be created to boost internet connectivity in the region.

"The economic blueprint will outline a strategic framework for the government about forward-looking plans around regional growth, innovation, productivity, small business and transport."
