New base stations for the Wingecarribee

Angus Taylor Mobile Base Station

Six new small base stations have been announced for the Hume electorate including one each at Wombeyan Caves ( Optus ) and Goodman's Ford ( Telstra )

Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor says small cell base stations typically deliver 4G mobile coverage across an area of a couple of kilometres.

The stations are expected to be rolled out over the coming months.

Other locations include Lakesland (Optus), New Wollondilly (Telstra), Werombi (Optus), Yerranderie (Telstra).

Mr. Taylor says now more than ever it's crucial we stay connected and these base stations will ensure that residents living within these areas or those travelling through can make phone calls and use mobile data.
