Mobile Phone Blackspots in Indi need to be nominated

Hi everyone, Cathy is encouraging locals to nominate their blackspots in Indi through the Mobile Coverage Programme, or contact her office to register the information to be passed on to the programme. While the Government has not indicated when the nomination period will close, it will not be running permanently and is expected to cease soon. Cathy McGowan AO, Federal Member for Indi, is urging residents in Indi who experience mobile phone blackspots to nominate them with the Government’s Mobile Phone Coverage Programme. Cathy made a submission to the Mobile Phone Coverage Programme in February, and while these have closed, registration of mobile phone blackspots can still be done. It’s important that Government has extensive data on the blackspot problem to guide decision-making on allocating the $100 million that has been committed to improve phone coverage in parts of the country. This is the major issue in Indi and we need to ensure the Government has knowledge of all blackspots in the electorate. This is the best opportunity to make the Mobile Phone Coverage Programme fully informed of where the lack of coverage exists in Indi. Blackspots can be nominated at mobilecoverage@communications.gov.au or by phoning 1800 113 486. If you'd like to nominate a blackspot, phone Ms McGowan’s office on 03 5721 7077 or email cathy.mcgowan.mp@aph.gov.au.
