Tony Pasin Calls For Mobile Black Spot Area Nominations


With the database of new additions only open for four weeks, Member for Barker Tony Pasin is calling on everyone in his electorate to inform his office about any mobile phone service area black spots.

The next round of the Federal Government’s $220 million Mobile Black Spot Program will soon be receiving nominations to improve mobile phone servicessoon, Mr Pasin saying now is the time to tell the government where the service isn't up to scratch.

“I strongly encourage residents in Barker to contact my office as soon as possible to nominate any mobile phone black spots in our community,”

“This presents a real opportunity for Barker residents to have their say on problem mobile black spots and encourage mobile operators to invest in our area through the Program.”

“The nominations will support round 4 of the program which will look to provide new or improved mobile coverage in areas where there are clear economic and social benefits,”

“Round 4 will also look to target medical, educational and emergency services facilities, as well as along key transport routes and in towns that experience seasonal demand due to tourism.”
