Queensland to get 68 new or upgraded towers to boost mobile coverage
Regional Queensland will receive a major boost in mobile coverage with 68 new or upgraded towers built in locations ranging from Eulo in the state’s south-west to Darnley Island in the Torres Strait.
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.
Queensland Government Chief Information Officer Andrew Mills said this was significant collaborative initiative involving all levels of government and mobile operators with a successful outcome—set to benefit many people across the state.
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.
