National Audit of Mobile Coverage

National Audit of Mobile Coverage

The National Audit of Mobile Coverage is a component of the Government's broader Better Connectivity Plan for Regional and Rural Australia and a 2022 election commitment.

The Audit will help the Government to better identify mobile coverage black spots, target future investment and help assess the accuracy of carrier coverage maps.

The Department has published a Request for Tender (RFT) relating to the Audit, including a Statement of Requirements.

The RFT covers the proposed scope of, and approach to, the Audit, including proposed routes and locations for auditing.

The Department thanks the many interested parties who responded to the RFI (Request for Information) in August. Their responses helped us to refine the Statement of Requirements.

Responses to the RFT should be provided by 2pm (AEST) Wednesday 15 November 2023.
