The NSW Government is working directly with telecommunications service providers to improve mobile and digital connectivity in regional and rural parts of NSW through the $50 million Connecting Country Communities Fund. This fund incorporates the Mobile Black Spots Program and the Regional Digital Connectivity Program.
In order to maximize the chance of investment by telecommunications service providers in infrastructure and solutions within our shire we urge our residents to share your experience with mobile coverage or internet/digital connectivity by completing the questionnaire available at the following website before 15 August 2018.
The questionnaire includes a map to outline the area where the issue is occurring. Obviously the more people we have that complete the questionnaire the better our chance of being seen as a priority area for investment.
If you have trouble completing the questions online, you can contact Council and we will provide a PDF copy of the questions for you to complete and return them to:-
PO Box 5106 Wollongong NSW 2520
or call 1300 679 673.
Again we urge you to take the time to identify issues being experienced in our area.
