Telstra has advised that its mobile base station at Narangba West in Longman has been switched on and is now on air.
This is the 907th base station funded under the Mobile Black Spot Program to be switched on, and the 7th in the Longman electorate.
This macro cell base station, jointly funded by the Federal Government, Telstra and the Queensland Government under Round 4 of the Mobile Black Spot Program (the Program), is co-located on the NBN tower at Narangba West.
The base station is expected to provide over 6 square kilometres of new and improved mobile coverage to the area immediately around the site and also to a significant distance to the north and south.
Local roads, such as Alf Dobson, Schulz, Raynbird and Roberts Roads, are also expected to benefit from improved coverage.
This base station is expected to improve mobile coverage in an area that previously experienced patchy coverage from mobile network operators and will benefit those living, working and travelling through this area.
In addition, the site will complement coverage from the Telstra base station at Moorina, which came on air in October 2020, and which is also funded through the Program.
