Even low-speed internet connections are capable of providing these stations - in areas where traditional AM or FM broadcasting would not reliably reach.

MASERATI'S AS "LEARNER" CARS
So as usual, regional areas are treated like second-class citizens while the city folk receive every advantage.
Cairns 4CA radio is owned by Sydney family, Grant Broadcasters Pty. Ltd. The Grant family has gotten fabulously wealthy running rural radio stations across Australia since 1942, and currently run over 50. Radio stations - the publicly owned airwaves, have made the Grant's multi-millionaires.
The stations are run by Janet Grant Cameron, along with her daughter and two sons, who've obviously grown up with silver spoons in their mouths and don't give a shit about the regional areas like Cairns, all while shoveling our money into their wallets.
The fee demanded by the PPCA for distribution to the recording artists?
$325 per quarter. $108 per month!

These radio station cretins should be ashamed of themselves.
