Locals living in the Dayboro region will soon benefit from new and improved mobile coverage under Round 5 of the Coalition Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program.
Federal Member for Dickson Peter Dutton today announced Kobble Creek would receive a new base station under Round 5, providing improved mobile coverage in the community.
“It’s great that Dayboro will soon be benefitting from improved mobile connectivity provided by these new base stations,” Mr Dutton said.
“We have just seen the completion of the tower at Mount Pleasant from round 3 of the program and now Kobble Creek will soon receive improved service as well.
“This is fantastic news for our community here in Dayboro and the improved mobile coverage will make it easier for locals to connect with family and friends or run a small business from home.”
Round 5 of the program will fund a further 182 new base stations for regional and remote communities across Australia.
The announcement of successful Round 5 locations today brings the total number of base stations funded under the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program to 1,229, underlining the Coalition Government’s ongoing commitment to providing new and improved mobile connectivity to Australians across the country.
The Federal Government is contributing a total of $34 million to Round 5 of the Program, which will deliver total new investment of more than $73 million together with co-contributions from the funding recipients and state governments.
Round 5 base stations are scheduled to roll out in the coming months with the first new base stations expected to be activated by the end of the year.
