SOME of New England’s most remote areas will get life changing mobile phone service, with five new towers to be rolled out across the region.
Baldersleigh (west of Guyra), Koreelah (west of Woodenbong), Pinkett (east of Glen Innes), Aberfoyle (east of Guyra) and Wongwibinda (near Ebor) will get towers under round two of the government’s Mobile Black Spot Programme.
Deputy Prime Minister and New England MP Barnaby Joyce said that made a total of 36 towers secured for the region since he was elected.
“Mobile coverage for the New England electorate is something I have worked hard for and will continue to work hard, pushing out into the edges of my electorate, he said.
“The Baldersleigh tower was pledged during the election campaign under round three of the programme, but I am pleased to say, it has been promoted to round two.
“I’m proud to be delivering better mobile coverage to the New England electorate.”
