Mo­bile cov­er­age fix

Pilbara News - - News - Cally Dupe

If you live in an area with tepid mo­bile cov­er­age, now is the time to do some­thing about it.

The Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment is urg­ing Kim­ber­ley res­i­dents to nom­i­nate ar­eas which need bet­ter mo­bile cov­er­age as it rolls out round two of the na­tional mo­bile black spot pro­gram.

Lo­ca­tions will be added to a na­tional data­base and form part of a com­pet­i­tive se­lec­tion process where tel­cos will nom­i­nate sites to build new or up­graded sta­tions.

Du­rack MP Melissa Price said mo­bile phone black spots were hugely im­por­tant for re­gional com­mu­ni­ties and the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment had com­mit­ted $60 mil­lion to round two.

Se­lected lo­ca­tions will be an­nounced by the end of next year. Nom­i­na­tions close on De­cem­ber 21 and can be made at com­mu­ni­ca­tions.gov.au/blackspots or emailed to Ms Price at Melissa.Price.MP @aph.gov.au.
