Mobile coverage in the greater Esperance region is expected to improve with nine new sites to be activated to prevent black spots.
Representatives from the local, state and federal governments as well as Telstra were on hand to launch sites in Scaddan West, Dalyup, Dalyup North, Beaumont and Fisheries Road between Condingup and Neridup.
Four more sites in Grass Patch East, Mt Burdett, Merivale and Neridup will be up and going in the coming weeks.
These sites are part of over 180 black spots to be rectified across regional and rural Western Australia.
“The Goldfields-Esperance region is a major agricultural, commercial, mining and tourist region," said Telstra Area General Manager Boyd Brown. "We’re proud to be part of this important initiative which is connecting so many more rural communities in this dynamic area.”
