Telco Singtel Optus has switched on a new mobile site in Napoleon Reef in NSW, as part of the government's Mobile Black Spot Program.

The new site was funded by Optus, the NSW Government and the Federal Government and will improve coverage in the village and also the Great Western Highway between Yetholme and Raglan.

“Being able to bring mobile coverage to small rural communities like Napoleon Reef is incredibly important to us. We want every Australian to have access to reliable mobile coverage and programs like the Federal Governments Mobile Black Spot Program are crucial enablers of this goal,” said Andrew Sheridan, Optus' vice-president of Government Regulatory and Government Affairs.

“As the main artery linking Sydney with Bathurst it’s important that we offer commuters and holidaymakers driving along the Great Western Highway with reliable mobile reception.

"Critically, this new site in Napoleon Reef, will help enhance in-vehicle coverage along the highway which is vital for the thousands of people who travel along this stretch of road each day.”

Regional Services Minister Senator Bridget McKenzie said the program was delivering much-needed new investment in mobile infrastructure across regional Australia to address mobile coverage issues.

“It’s fantastic to see that the program is reaching more and more communities across the country, like Napoleon Reef," she said.

“The Mobile Black Spot Program is enabling mobile carriers to service areas like Napolean Reef where it would otherwise not have been economically viable."
