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.
Malcolm Turnbull memorably couldn’t be interviewed on his visit in early May because his phone kept dropping out. His candidate has not committed one extra dollar to addressing mobile black spots in Tasmania.
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.
