Mo­bile blackspots

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

MARA­NOA MP David Lit­tleproud has urged lo­cals to nom­i­nate mo­bile blackspots to the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s na­tional data­base.

“Now’s the time to nom­i­nate mo­bile blackspot ar­eas around our re­gion to put them in the mix for part of the next $25 mil­lion round of the Coali­tion Gov­ern­ment’s Mo­bile Black Spot Pro­gram,” Mr Lit­tleproud said.

“Peo­ple in the bush shouldn’t have to roam around their prop­erty, wav­ing their phone in the air try­ing to pick up a sig­nal.”

To be el­i­gi­ble, lo­ca­tions must have poor or no mo­bile cov­er­age and be lo­cated out­side of ur­ban cen­tres. The se­lec­tion process will pri­ori­tise cov­er­age for es­sen­tial ser­vices.

To nom­i­nate a lo­ca­tion, visit www.davidlit­tleproud­bile-black-spots/ and sub­mit a nom­i­na­tion form by Oc­to­ber 3. Forms can also be col­lected from elec­torate of­fices.
