Poor mobile phone reception on the Bellarine - Public Meeting

April 20, 2022 at 6:00pm - 7pm
Portarlington Parks Hall, 87 Newcombe St, Portarlington

I've recently hosted an online website survey to scope the extent of poor, or non-existent, mobile phone reception on the Bellarine Peninsula. This followed a large number of complaints to my office about mobile coverage.

I received hundreds of responses to my survey.

Poor coverage issues seem to be widespread across the Bellarine, but especially in the north around St Leonards and Indented Head.  However, there are other areas of significant concern, such as around Curlewis.

Sadly, after nine years of Coalition governments in Canberra this is still an issue.

I have already raised this issue in Parliament. And I have sought preliminary information from the telcos.

In order to be better inform, and to strengthen my advocacy on behalf of the residents of the Bellarine, I've decided to call a public meeting to hear first-hand about your challenges with mobile phone coverage.

If you would like to share your experiences with me, and with others, please come to my meeting.
