Mobile coverage boost in Narangba

Posted: 12pm 12 Feb 2021

People living and travelling through Narangba West will now have better phone service to make calls and browse the internet.

A new mobile base station at Alf Dobson Rd, Narangba West, has been turned on and will significantly improve phone service for users in the area.

The base station is expected to provide more than six square kilometres of new and improved mobile coverage around the site and a significant distance north and south.

Streets ahead

Local streets, such as Alf Dobson, Schulz, Raynbird and Roberts roads are also expected to benefit.

The site will complement coverage from the base station at Moorina, which came on air in October 2020, and was also funded through the Mobile Black Spot Program.

Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts Paul Fletcher said the base station was part of federal government’s commitment to improving connectivity.


Better coverage

“This significant investment as part of the Mobile Black Spot Program means people living, working and travelling in Longman will now have better mobile coverage.,” Minister Fletcher says.

“This is especially important following this summer’s devastating bushfires. Australians naturally want to be confident our communications networks are as resilient as possible.

“The Mobile Black Spot Program is an important part of this as it provides an alternative communications option if another network goes down during an emergency situation.”

Seven sites

Federal Member for Longman Terry Young adds: “My constituents have raised the issue of poor service in this part of Narangba.

“The new mobile base station was completed by Telstra and is the latest of seven sites across Longman to receive new or improved mobile coverage under the program.

More information about the program is available at communications.gov.au/mbsp.
