Mobile black spots set to get coverage
FEDERAL MP Christian Porter and Federal Minister Bridget McKenzie have announced funding as part of the Mobile Black Spot Program for Bullsbrook and the Swan Valley.
The announcement is part of the Federal Government’s commitment to address coverage issues in the region.
Mr Porter said improved coverage would open new doors for local businesses and the community.
“The Coalition’s Mobile Black Spot program is already delivering new or improved coverage to six sites across Pearce, which will see local businesses and residents in the area benefit from access to 21st century communications,” he said.
“These two priority locations will receive funding for a Telstra macro base station, which will improve mobile coverage in both areas.”
Ms McKenzie said construction would start soon.
“We’ve committed $220 million to improve black spots across our vast country,” she said. “Sixty million dollars of this funding is targeting priority black spots with poor or no mobile coverage, like in Bullsbrook and the Swan Valley.”
