Britnell calls on Government to show how it will improve mobile coverage

Member for South West Coast Roma Britnell has asked the State Government to outline how it plans to improve mobile phone coverage across the electorate.

Mrs Britnell’s question in Parliament follows the state government announcing it will pull out of the Federal Government’s mobile blackspot program and establish its own program because it believed it could do a better job for regional Victorians.

“I want to know exactly how the government plans to do a better job and how mobile phone service in my electorate will be improved – given there are a number of blackspots across South West Coast,” Mrs Britnell asked Minister for Innovation and Digital Economy Minister Philip Dalidakis.

“The State Government has said it can do a better job and I want them to prove it and show the community its plans for this vital program for regional Victorians.”

Under standing orders, the Minister has 30 days to provide a response.
