Boost to Regional Phone Coverage

Mobile phone
Mobile phone coverage across regional SA is set for a boost with funding now open to fix mobile Black Spots across the region. $80 million is available for the funding across the country through the Commonwealth Mobile Black Spot Program.
Around 500 mobile black spots are registered across regional SA and an Expression of Interest process will now be undertaken to help decide which locations will be prioritised locally.
Regional communities are encouraged to put together an application and put themselves at the top of the priority list for new mobile phone towers.
The Expression of Interest period is open from now until 7 June 2019. Enquiries about the EOI process can be directed to [email protected]
