Mobile coverage is set to improve on the Fleurieu Peninsula with an $800,000 investment in a new phone tower.
Telstra and the State Government have partnered to deliver the infrastructure in a mobile black spot zone around Inman Valley and Back Valley.
Member for Finniss David Basham said it is a great result for the local community who have been waiting years for better services.
“A reliable mobile phone service makes a significant difference for families, individuals and businesses living and working in remote areas. This will improve safety for those in the Inman and Back Valley area as well as open up new economic opportunities.”
“Our regional communities can only grow if we have a reliable service and keep improving our telecommunications."
The South Australian Mobile Phone Black Spot Fund has contributed to addressing 39 mobile phone black spot locations in regional South Australia.
