Dataset: Community Reports of Poor or No Mobile Coverage


The Department of Communications and the Arts has received nominations of regional locations with poor or no mobile coverage from members of the public, State, Territory and Local Governments and Members of Parliament. The database was used by applicants to design their proposals for funding under Rounds 1 and 2 of the Mobile Black Spot Program (the Program) and is again being used for Round 4.

The National Mobile Black Spot Database was re-opened for new nominations for Round 4. This nomination period closed on 11 October 2018, new nominations are not being accepted at this time.

Further information about the Program is available on the Department’s website at

Note: The locations on the database have not been independently tested to verify the level of mobile coverage available.
