Voters will have big call to make
MOBILE blackspots continue to be a problem in areas across the region, but if the coalition is elected later this month, things might change.
Victorian Member for Euroa Steph Ryan said an elected Liberal-Nationals government would invest $30 million to boost mobile connectivity across rural and regional Victoria, helping farmers, families and
business in local communities who are struggling to receive mobile coverage.
‘‘In this digital age where the internet, smart phones and technology dominate, it is vital that families and business in regional and rural areas have a reliable connection,’’ Ms Ryan said.
‘‘Local farming families are battling to receive a few bars of mobile coverage, which
is a huge concern with bushfire season approaching.
‘‘Under our program, we’ll invest in new mobile towers to improve coverage to ensure that residents have access to emergency information should they need it.’’
Blackspots remain a big issue.
