East Lynne network coverage switched on: identified as a community nominated Mobile Phone Blackspot

In a media release today Federal Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis has welcomed the activation of the East Lynne mobile phone base station under the Federal Governments Mobile Black Spot Program. “The benefits this new site will bring are critical to making sure local residents and road users have access to a more reliable communication network especially in the event of an emergency,” Mrs Sudmalis said. “I have received a lot of feedback through community consultation relating to poor network coverage in the region; today’s announcement is just the beginning in addressing one of the poor coverage areas in Gilmore.” A fourth round of the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program is expected to commence soon. “$25 million will available for this next round of the Mobile Black Spot funding. While we are celebrating the switching on of East Lynne, I encourage everybody, including businesses and community organisations to consider where else they believe coverage is lacking." “As soon as nominations open, we’ll announce it and look forward to loads of contributions. Numbers count in the nomination round, so we need the whole community to get involved.” More information about the program is available at: www.communications.gov.au/mbsp
