Notice of Motion - Government must allocate more funding to remove mobile phone black spots
Posted March 02, 2015
More needs to be done to fix mobile phone coverage in regional Australia. While the $100 million Mobile Black Spot Programme is a good start, this funding will only cover a fraction of the 6000 blackspots registered. In Parliament today, Cathy called on the Government to allocate more funding to help fix this issue facing much of regional Australia and prompted debate through a notice of motion. Indi alone has 274 mobile phone black spots registered and may receive funding for three under the Federal Government programme.
