Nominate local black spots

BLACK spots for communication on the Northern Rivers are, at best, frustrating, and at worst could be fatal.

Nominations are currently being called for black spot locations in the electorate of Page to be submitted by December 31 for consideration under Round 2 of the Mobile Black Spot Programme.

"The Federal Government has committed $60 million which will help provide new or upgraded mobile coverage in Page under Round 2 of the Mobile Black Spot Programme," Page MP Kevin Hogan said.

"I strongly encourage residents of Page to nominate mobile black spots in the local area before the deadline of December 31."

Black spot nominations for Round 2 of the program can be made online at www.communications.gov.au/blackspots or emailed to kevin.hogan.mp@aph.gov.au

"This is the biggest one-time increase in mobile coverage from a single funding programme in the history of mobile telecommunications in Australia," Mr Hogan said.

The selection process will begin in early 2016.
