Improving mobile coverage in Queensland
Queenslanders will receive better mobile coverage with 68 new or upgraded mobile towers being built over the next 3 years.
We contributed $10 million as part of a total investment package of $53.85 million for Queenslanders as part of the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Programme.
Base stations to be funded under the program will roll out over a three year period. Construction will begin in the second half of 2015.
As well as the towers, our arrangement with Telstra includes installation of 50 4G small cells to provide coverage in additional locations. Over the next few months, we will be considering the best locations for these 4G small cells.
