A Shorten Labor Government will invest up to $2 million to improve mobile phone coverage, fixing mobile black spots in Circular Head, the West Coast and on King Island.
There are over 110 mobile phone black spots on the Government’s own mobile phone black spot database, just in the North West and yet, the Government has put no money aside in their most recent Budget for addressing the problems with mobile phone black spots. They think the job is done. We don’t.
The Liberals’ top down approach has resulted in delays and unrealised towers.
Labor will work with local residents, local and state governments, emergency services and mobile network operators to finalise priority areas and ensure work begins soon after the election.
Only Bill Shorten and Justine Keay will stand up for a Fair Go for the North West and West Coasts.
