COMMUNITIES who do not get mobile coverage have more time to apply for government help after the Federal government extended nominations for the mobile black spots program to this Friday.
Public nominations for round two of the program were originally set to close on December 31, 2015 but the government made the decision to give more time to the public.
Federal member for Wright, Scott Buchholz MP said the extension gave communities more opportunity to get their nominations in.
“The new closing date will ensure individuals and community groups in Wright have enough time to get their nominations in after the festive season and reflects the significant demand for improved mobile coverage in rural, regional and remote Australia,” he said.
There are 499 new and upgraded mobile base stations in regional and remote Australia being rolled out through the $100 million round one investment. To nominate visit www.communications.gov.au/blackspots or phone Mr Buchholz office on 5541 0150.
