More black spot base stations go live

A further 29 new mobile phone base stations were switched on during February, as part of the federal government’s $220 million Mobile Black Spot Program.

The base stations are providing coverage to regional communities and towns in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and Victoria.

Rounds 1 and 2 of the program aim to deliver 765 new base stations to address black spot areas across the nation.

A third, $60 million round will target another 125 priority locations.

A competitive tender process for the priority locations round closed in December 2017, and successful applicants and locations are expected to be announced soon.
