Cattle producers in Australia have turned to social media to highlight deficits in internet access in rural, regional, and remote Australia. This chapter provides a case study about how a group of Australian cattle producer women used social marketing and advocacy to improve internet access and educational data allowances in rural, regional, and remote Australia. A content analysis of Facebook posts and comments from the Better Internet for Rural, Regional, and Remote Australia (BIRRR) evidenced a connection between advocacy and the principles of marketing. The results of the analysis highlighted deficits in access to internet connectivity and lead to a change in policy giving rural, regional, and remote school children a dedicated education portal to complete their studies.
