Eldorado celebrates improved mobile reception
Members of the Eldorado community will celebrate improved reception when the Eldorado mobile phone tower is officially launched on Saturday, 20 January 2018.
The community will be joined by Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan and Telstra’s Garry Austin at an event hosted by Eldorado Food Share at Gunhouse Park.
Ms McGowan congratulated the community and Wangaratta Council for their work in identifying the black spot as a priority. Wangaratta has six spots funded – Eldorado, Archerton, Edi Upper, Moyhu, Myrrhee and Upper Ryans Creek.
“This is an achievement by the community in partnership with the council. It’s a testament to how effective it is when communities and all levels of government work together,” Ms McGowan said.
“Indi has been successful in securing funding for 38 new mobile phone towers under the Mobile Black Spot Programme. This will be the ninth community event held to celebrate the new towers. I will continue to work on a sustainable solution to addressing all remaining blackspots across Wangaratta local government area and the rest of the electorate.
“I am delighted Eldorado will be one of five towers in Indi which will provide the colocation of NBN services.
“Thank you to Telstra and the State and Federal Governments on delivering a really important boost to local telecommunications.”
“People expect and deserve mobile phone coverage and internet wherever they are in Australia,” she said.
