Vodafone continues to invest heavily in its mobile network in regional Australia, particularly in blackspot areas with limited or no network coverage, in response to what it says is growing demand for advanced mobile devices and services in regional areas.
Optus is boosting its investment in regional mobile phone coverage, announcing plans for the installation of satellite small cells across six different locations in South Australia and five locations in the Northern Territory.
Australia’s second largest telco Optus has secured funding to build 114 new mobile sites as part of the federal government’s mobile blackspot programme aimed at improving mobile coverage across regional and rural Australia.
The Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has promised a re-elected Coalition government would allocate $60 million in funding to the national mobile blackspot program.
Online connectivity and access to the Internet is on the improve for all Australians, including those living in regional and remote areas outside our capital cities and urban areas. But, while regional residents are gradually closing the gap on their city counterparts,there’s still some way to go before regional Australia enjoys online access to match that of city dwellers.
A cooperative development approach for regional Australia should be employed to make the most of significant opportunities communications technologies offer, according to a newly released ‘Digital Futures’ report from telco Vodafone and the Regional Australia Institute (RAI).
iiNet has announced plans to expand its DSLAM network to enable it connect some 38,500 households and businesses in Darwin and Regional Queensland.
