Report a mobile phone black spot to help secure funding

COMMUNICATION in a rural area can mean the difference between life and death.

Flood-affected areas such as the Boyne Valley feel the impacts of natural disasters twofold due to the isolation of living in a mobile black spot.

The Federal Government has been compiling a list of problem spots, with locations in the Boyne Valley, Lowmead, Baffle Creek and Gladstone regions among the 2000 submissions entered.

Only 250-300 mobile base stations are expected to be funded.

The location of mobile black spots can be reported by email to mobilecoverage@communications.gov.au.
