ACCAN has launched the 2nd Edition of the Community Consultation Guide, in time for Round 2 of the Federal Government's Mobile Black Spot Programme. The Guide is designed to help communities address issues with mobile coverage in their areas.
Mobile coverage is a key issue for consumers, particularly those in regional, rural and remote Australia. Achieving improvements in mobile coverage is a priority focus of ACCAN's work. The Mobile Black Spot Programme will deliver improvements to mobile coverage, but the demand for these improvements will far outstrip supply.
The Guide sets out steps to help communities understand what mobile network operators look for when deciding where to invest, and how to put together an effective business case for investment. It also contains information on who communities can contact and potentially partner with to achieve results.
