New Mobile Base Stations for our community

Areas in Page will receive improved mobile phone coverage if the Coalition is re-elected as part of an additional $60 million commitment to extend the successful Mobile Black Spot Program, Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan announced last week. New mobile base stations in Nammoona, Ramornie, Yorklea, and Kyogle will bring a much-needed boost to mobile coverage, providing benefits to emergency service operators, businesses, and residents. “Our community did very well out of the last round with 91 black spots fixed with eleven new or upgraded base stations: serve Bentley, Bonalbo, Copmanhurst, Nymboida, Babyl Creek, Ettrick, Lower Peacock, Hernani, Piora, and Culmaran Creek,” Mr Hogan said. “The Coalition Government understands the importance of mobile coverage in regional and remote areas of Australia. That is why we are committing an additional $60 million on top of the $160 million already invested in mobile black spots, bringing the Coalition’s total investment to $220 million”, said Mr Hogan. “We have selected these areas of the electorate because they have been overlooked by mobile network operators due to commercial factors. A re-elected Coalition government will invite mobile network operators to bid for this new funding to provide coverage in the identified locations.
