The mobile base station at Reids Flat has been switched on, which is the 17th government-funded mobile base station in Hume.
The station, which is jointly funded by the Federal Government and Telstra, will provide 4G coverage to the Reids Flat village.
Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor said a mobile base station is the ideal solution for small communities like Reids Flat. “Local streets in the village will see improved coverage as well as sections of Reids Flat Road. This is great news for the Reids Flat community; this area has long struggled with little to no service, so I’m very pleased we could deliver a small cell to provide improved coverage for residents.”
“Round 5A of the Mobile Black Spot Program will be opening before the end of the year, and I will announce more details regarding the application process for this program in the next few weeks,” said Mr Taylor.
The mobile base station at Frogmore was switched on earlier this year in April. For more details about the Mobile Black Spot Program, please visit https://www.communications.gov.au/what-we-do/phone/mobile-services-and-coverage/mobile-black-spot-program
