Telstra is the big winner bringing a package of funds to achieve 427 new and upgraded base stations across regional and remote Australia.
Vodafone is involved in a further 70 base stations.
The Australian Government also announced that following the success of the $100Mil Round 1 they have confirmed a further $60Mil for Round 2 to be announced in July 2016.
ASCA welcomes both of these announcements. Many of our member communities continue to be challenged by the lack of connectivity for both fixed and mobile services. We look forward to learning the build timelines for Round 1 and ways to identify blackspots for our communities to be resolved in Round 2.
