Federal funding to fix mobile phone black spots is about to run out - but there's still over 125 places in the Electorate of Mayo that need fixing.
Add your name to my letter to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to tell him to extend funding for the Mobile Phone Black Spot Program in the upcoming Federal Budget:
Dear Prime Minister,
As residents of the Federal Electorate of Mayo, we appeal to you to continue funding the Mobile Black Spot Program.
When the program was first launched, over 130 mobile black spots were identified in our electorate. Over the three rounds, only five of these sites have been addressed.
Much of our electorate is within a high-risk bushfire area and reliable mobile phone coverage is essential for our safety.
Poor telecommunications services also hinder our economic growth, educational progress and social connection.
We urge you to fund further rounds of the Mobile Phone Black Spot Program.
