Alex Kidman 5 April 2016


Vodafone has announced where it’ll be rolling out improvements to eliminate mobile blackspots across Australia.

As part of the Federal Goverment’s mobile blackspot programme, Vodafone has today announced where and when it’ll be commencing works to improve mobile coverage in 70 sites across New South Wales, Tasmania, Queensland, Western Australia and Victoria.

Telstra’s already announced its part of the same scheme , which you can read about here.

Vodafone notes that its rollout schedule is, like most schedules, subject to change, but broadly speaking here’s where and when it’ll be undertaking improvement works:
