Non-profit consumer action group Digital Tasmania has decried the fact that a $5.2 million investment to upgrade mobile services in Tasmania's west coast region has been limited to just one mobile operator – Telstra.

The rollout of the national mobile blackspot program has seen the town of Panuara South in central NSW become the latest community to have mobile phone coverage improved with the switching on of a new tower by Optus.

Regional Australian lobby group the Rural Regional and Remote Communications Coalition has welcomed the announcement from the Australian Government which will see regional Australians benefit from 180 new mobile base stations as part of Round 4 of the mobile black spot program.
