Telstra is making it easy for its customers in former black spot areas to make calls, with over 100 million made from those locations, so Chuckie's cry of "why didn't you call" can't be because you didn't have mobile service.
Residents in and around Dulong, Queensland, are now duly celebrating long awaited "new and improved mobile coverage", and it's all "thanks to the Coalition Government’s $220 million Mobile Black Spot Program".
If the lack of Optus mobile coverage in specific locations in NSW, QLD and Tasmania is leaving you feeling black, Optus and the federal government's Mobile Black Spot programme will shine bright white with fresh new coverage.
Optus has launched 20 new mobile sites in the Northern Territory, across regional and remote areas.
Vodafone Australia has announced the expansion of 4G services in Central West NSW with the addition of nearly 1400 square kilometres to its mobile footprint in the region, while Optus yesterday announced a further $1.7 million spend for its network in Bathurst.
Vodafone has switched on a new mobile site at Kumbia near Kingaroy in regional Queensland, with another site near Boyneside set to follow “in the coming months.”
Telstra’s rollout of the federal government’s Mobile Black Spot Program is ramping up further and the carrier is using its announcement to justify the recent ACCC draft decision not to declare mobile roaming.
The Australian Labor Party has adopted a wait-and-see policy on the decision by the competition regulator not to declare wholesale mobile roaming and open up telecommunications to greater market competition.
Optus will invest $8.2 million of its own funds and $1.8 million from the federal government to set up 22 new mobile sites in Western Queensland.
A coalition of 17 organisations from across Australia is descending on Canberra today with a blunt message for all politicians: 2017 must be the year of bringing “reliable and affordable telecommunications” to rural, regional and remote Australia.
Vodafone is expanding its Tasmanian network with six new towers in and around Launceston and upgrading a number of existing sites to provide improved 4G services to its customers in the city.
Vodafone has alleviated more mobile phone blackspots with the completion of a new mobile base station at Invergowrie near Armidale in north-west NSW to deliver increased coverage to mobile users in the region.
More than $40 million is being invested to expand and improve telecommunications services throughout the Northern Territory as part of a three year agreement between the Northern Territory Government and Telstra.
