Ramornie to get new phone tower

Residents in and around the Ramornie area west of Grafton are to get better mobile phone coverage thanks to a new base station, being funded by the State Government.
Page MP Kevin Hogan said the Ramornie station was one of four in his electorate to have tenders offered in June this year. A total of 22 are being built in Page.
“Five of the 22 new base stations in our community are already active. With 17 to come online over the next 18 months, mobile phone coverage is going to improve significantly in our region,” Mr Hogan said.
“The areas have been selected because they have been overlooked by mobile network operators due to commercial factors.
Construction of the first of the new towers is expected to start before the end of this year.
“The Government is committed to improving mobile coverage along major transport routes, in small communities, as well as addressing unique mobile coverage problems such as areas with high seasonal demand,” Mr Hogan said.
