RESIDENTS have until January 15 to nominate mobile service black spots following a two-week extension to the deadline.
Pearce MHR Christian Porter said the Federal Government planned to spend $60 million in round two of the Mobile Black Spot program to improve coverage in rural, regional and remote areas.
“The new closing date will ensure individuals and community groups in Pearce have enough time to get their nominations in after the festive season,” he said.
“One of the biggest issues I am approached about in the community is that of mobile phone coverage (and) having travelled through these areas, I understand the community’s need for better coverage and services.”
