Nannup has a new mobile site

MOBILE coverage across the Margaret River and Nannup region has been boosted with two new sites being activated under the Mobile Black Spot Program.

Telstra area general manager Boyd Brown said sites at Rosa Glen and Nannup East were now delivering state of the art mobile coverage.

Mr Brown said the new sites were among 183 mobile coverage black spots across regional and rural WA benefitting from expanded 3G/4G mobile coverage.

“These are exciting times and a significant achievement for residents and businesses based around Margaret River and Nannup who have had their call for better mobile coverage answered,” he said.

“Expanding coverage across this region ensures locals can keep in contact with family and friends and run their businesses more effectively.” Mr Brown said each of the sites were equipped with a 4GX service which provides a faster mobile network with more consistent data speeds.

“The region is a major agricultural, commercial and tourist region and we’re proud to be part of this important initiative which is connecting so many more rural communities in this dynamic area.” The Mobile Black Spot Program is co-funded by the federal government and the state government’s regional telecommunications project.

Forrest MP Nola Marino said the the new towers would improve mobile reception in Margaret River and Nannup.

“This is great news for Margaret River and Nannup,” she said “These towers are two of 19 I’m building in the South West since the Turnbull Government was elected.”
