One of the main complaints my office receives is regarding poor mobile phone reception throughout the Shortland electorate. For years I have been fighting to secure funding and garner support from telecommunications companies to upgrade mobile phone towers in this area.
Thank you to everyone who has filled out this form so far. With this data, I was able to secure an election commitment that Labor will work with telecommunications companies and invest $2.25 million to improve mobile coverage in the areas of Eleebana, the Jewells and Redhead region, Lake Munmorah, and Budgewoi. I look forward to delivering this commitment.
I know the issue is not limited to these areas, so if you're experiencing unreliable mobile phone reception, please fill out this form to help me continue working towards ensuring that all suburbs in Shortland have reliable mobile phone reception.
