Applications are now open for Round 5A of the highly successful Mobile Black Spot Program.
Round 5A will be used to test a range of different program designs to continue to expand and improve mobile coverage for regional and remote Australia.
Round 5A includes a focus on three priority funding areas:
- high priority natural disaster prone areas, including those affected or prone to bushfire
- new technology solutions in areas where low population densities have discouraged applications under earlier rounds of the program, and
- major regional and remote transport corridors.
Mobile Network Operators and Infrastructure Providers have until 9 January 2021 to register interest in applying for funding under Round 5A.
