Cathy McGowan AO, Federal Member for Indi, is urging residents in Indi who experience mobile phone blackspots to nominate them with the Government’s Mobile Phone Coverage Programme.
Ms McGowan made a submission to the Mobile Phone Coverage Programme in February, and while these have closed, registration of mobile phone blackspots can still be done.
“It’s important that Government has extensive data on the blackspot problem to guide decision-making on allocating the $100 million that has been committed to improve phone coverage in parts of the country,” Ms McGowan said.
“This is the major issue in Indi and we need to ensure the Government has knowledge of all blackspots in the electorate.
“This is the best opportunity to make the Mobile Phone Coverage Programme fully informed of where the lack of coverage exists in Indi.”
Blackspots can be nominated at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 1800 113 486.
Ms McGowan is also inviting people to contact her office to provide their blackspot information so it can be passed on to the Mobile Coverage Programme.
People wanting to nominate a blackspot can phone Ms McGowan’s office on 03 5721 7077 or email email@example.com.
