Elleker rings in phone cover changes
Mobile phone users in Elleker and 13 other sites in the Great Southern should get better coverage thanks to improvements to Telstra’s network.
The sites, including Badgebup, Armstrong Road-Boscabel, Sturry Road-Cranbrook, Windy Harbour, Jacup, Noobijup, West River, Scadden West, Tenterden, Woogenellup, Ravensthorpe West and Beaumont, were targeted under the Mobile Black Spot Program.
Telstra and representatives from the Federal, State and local governments visited Elleker on Friday to mark the upgrades.
The sites are among 183 mobile phone coverage black spots across regional and rural WA that now have expanded 3G/4G coverage provided by Telstra through the Federal Government program.
