Clare valley looks for a boost to telecommunication services

Electricity generic.jpgAfter the Tesla and State Government announcement at Jamestown to build the worlds largest lithium-ion battery, Mid North locals are pushing to have their telecommunication services upgraded.
Bungaree Station owner and Clare Valley Business and Tourism Association member, Mark Stewart, urged for an upgrade to the internet and mobile service in the area with greater tourist numbers expected in the region after the battery’s completion.
Mr Stewart says the internet and mobile coverage is a; “key inhibitor-holding business back”, and that it is “stopping tourists” from staying longer to find all the attractions.
The call comes after earlier in the year, the state government allocated $227,273 in funding for a new mobile tower to be constructed in Sevenhill as one of four towers to be erected in rural areas.
