Mobile coverage is a key issue for consumers, particularly those in regional, rural and remote Australia. Achieving improvements in mobile coverage is a priority focus of ACCAN’s work. The Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Programme will deliver improvements to mobile coverage, but the demand for these improvements will far outstrip supply.
In December, 2014, ACCAN launched the Community Consultation Guide which is designed to help communities address issues with mobile coverage in their areas. The Guide sets out steps to help communities understand what mobile network operators look for when weighing up where to invest and it gives information on who they can contact and potentially partner with to achieve results.
