Residents in Clyde North will finally receive reliable mobile phone coverage, after years of waiting.
A priority of a Liberals and Nationals Government will be to deliver more mobile phone tower sites for the Casey community, to provide real coverage across homes and workplaces.
The Andrews Labor Government’s commitment to upgrading mobile infrastructure has fallen flat, with the millions of dollars invested delivering zero improvement to connectivity for many residents.
The Liberals and Nationals commitment will directly address the region’s blackspots, and ensure network coverage is fast and reliable.
Member for Gembrook and Liberal Candidate for Berwick, Brad Battin, said the basic connectivity infrastructure in these areas has been overlooked, and residents have been left to go without.
“In one of the fastest growing areas of a city of more than 5 million people, residents find themselves unable to call family and friends. The Andrews’ Government has again failed to provide a basic service for thousands of Victorians.”
“Working with Casey Council and different telcos, the Liberals and Nationals will address this as an urgent priority, and deliver fast and reliable mobile coverage once and for all.”
Liberal Candidate for Cranbourne, Jagdeep Singh, noted the stark difference between those living in Clyde North, and those living in neighbouring suburbs.
“It’s not an issue for people living in Cranbourne, so it shouldn’t be an issue for people living in Clyde and Clyde North in 2022.”
“Only the Liberals and Nationals will get on with delivering this important service.”
