Mobile black spots

Consultation has concluded

In September/October the Federal Government sought input from local and state governments on mobile phone black spots (areas with poor or no mobile phone coverage) in regional areas.

We collected feedback on your experiences with poor mobile phone coverage in our region, and made an online submission to the Federal Government to share that information.

The information submitted will be used to support the next round (Round 4) of the Mobile Black Spot Program. The Government has committed $220 million to the program (including $25 million in Round 4) to invest in telecommunications infrastructure to improve mobile phone coverage and competition across Australia.

More information is available in the document library to the right of your screen, or visit the Federal Government's Mobile Black Spot Program website.
