The second round of the Australian Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program will deliver 266 new or upgraded mobile base stations to improve mobile coverage in regional Australia.
The new base stations will spread across NSW (39), Victoria (32), Queensland (76), Western Australia (78), South Australia (20), Tasmania (6) and the Northern Territory (15).
The Mobile Black Spot Program drew on information from the public who nominated mobile black spots in their local communities. These were provided to mobile network providers to allow them to develop funding proposals.
