We pay our telecommunications companies good money for service, yet many areas still lag with adequate coverage. It is through this petition I hope to get enough support to justify the addition of extra telecommunications equipment between New Plymouth and Pio Pio. Many people travel through this area on State Highway 3 there is a long outage of cell phone reception in this area. The road can be treacherous, with slips,wandering stock and flooding etc. The extra coverage would have significant safety advantages, and I welcome your support in this area in helping us to acquire a better service.
