Waroona residents should have improved mobile phone and internet reception after a new communications tower was established in the region.

The new mobile base station north of Waroona has been built as part of the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program.

Member for Canning Andrew Hastie welcomed the completion of the tower and said Peel residents deserved better mobile coverage.

“The Waroona north mobile base station is a critical piece of infrastructure for our local community,” he said. 

“Towers like this ensure rural Australia remains competitive in the modern economy, that people can connect with their families and regional communities like ours remain an attractive place for tourism.”

The Government’s Mobile Black Spot program has seen over $220 million invested into 867 mobile towers across Australia over three rounds of funding.

The round four selection process for further mobile infrastructure is expected to commence later this year.
