Mobile Blackspots in The Ponds

Now, more than ever, adequate access to mobile coverage is imperative, especially if we’re working from home during lockdown. 

However, the evidence from a local survey show that the residents from The Ponds in Greenway are frustrated with the poor mobile coverage. 

I have written to the Chief Executive Officers of Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and TPG, and received separate briefings from their network planners and engineering teams.

Each company has acknowledged to me their coverage quality in The Ponds is inadequate and that it should be a priority to address.

I am working through the details of these circumstances with the mobile carriers, the NSW Government and the Blacktown City council.

My goal is to facilitate and accelerate a practical solution to improve your mobile coverage, because having access to quality connectivity is essential for quality of life.

By signing up for updates, I will keep you informed on the developments of the mobile blackspots and as always, please do not hesitate to contact my office at any time. 

If there is anything I can do to help keep you, your family, and our community, please contact me on 02 9671 4780 or at [email protected].

Yours sincerely
