Australian Caravan Club (ACC) National Chairman Craig Humphrey has welcomed the announcement of improved mobile phone coverage in parts of regional Queensland, under a joint Commonwealth-State Government funding arrangement.
The townships of Injinoo, Ayton, and Cape Tribulation in Far North Queensland, locations in remote western shires such as Cloncurry, and Kholo and Wongawallan in South-East Queensland, will benefit from the funding as new and improved mobile base stations are delivered.
‘RVers can encounter all sorts of problems including health issues and vehicle breakdowns while on their travels,’ said Mr Humphrey. ‘Many RVers conduct business while on the road, and of course many need to keep in touch with families at home.’
‘Members of the ACC and I am sure all RVers, will welcome this announcement knowing they will be able to have greater mobile coverage for their mobile phones and other digital devices.’
‘This is definitely a move in the right direction. I look forward to the day when RVers can travel without the worry that in an emergency, they may not have mobile phone coverage,’ Mr Humphrey said.
