Steels Creek gets mobile blackspot funding
On Friday 29 June, our Federal member Tony Smith, along with Paul Fletcher, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Communications (Malcolm Turnbull), met with some very happy members of the Steels Creek Association at the SCCC to provide some details about our community’s success in being nominated to receive funding as part of the mobile blackspot program.
It has been confirmed that Telstra will be installing a base station that will cover Steels Creek (with 4G) to a significant extent (with other networks being able to co-locate on this station). With any luck, it could be as early as the end of this year. In any case, the roll-out of 500 base stations across the country is to take three years, with as many as possible being installed as quickly as possible in that time.
The SCA started discussions with Tony Smith in July 2013, as a result of the concerns over lack of mobile phone coverage expressed in the ‘community needs’ survey conducted in the early part of that year. Three years on, following a number of community meetings and discussions with Yarra Ranges Council, who have been advocating on our behalf for the past year, the news announced in Parliament on Thursday, and confirmed with phone calls from Tony Smith to SCA reps that afternoon, was welcome news indeed.
