Mobile phone and internet coverage for Wantabadgery, NSW Australia

We the local residents and visitors and supporters of the applicaton of the

Wantabadgery Parish in NSW (part of the constituency of Adrian Picoli)

Would like to draw attention to the fact that there has still been no follow up to their request for some suitable kind of tower or antennae in the village to give us mobile phone coverage and decent internet coverage. They are unable to get mobile phone coverage, and have to rely on satellite coverage for internet, and they only reside 40 klms from Wagga Wagga

This request has been going on for 9 years.

They have multiple problems during the fire season. It is a growing village with attractions like a beach which is popular with visitors, an annual cycle event which draws a very large crowd to the village.

  • Keith Gallagher Get wqith the times.

  • Jennifer Worldon All local residence are members of the RFS, due to our isolation we are the first responders to all critical incidences with in this area, without reliable mobile service our effectiveness is greatly hindered. We are located on network roads, access for travellers from central NSW going to the snow fields in winter and tourist activities in summer for country attactions- Dams, bushwalking. We are a destination for travellers with our river front beachs and camping ground areas. We are also under the main flight path from Sydney- Canberra to and from Wagga Wagga. We would be the first responders in a critical incident in an air disaster. As a major farming community any on farm incidents will rely on reliable mobile phone service for assistance.In an emergency time delay in attending critical incidence can mean the difference between a good or bad outcome. This lack of service has been an ongoing problem for many years and needs to be addressed ASAP.
