Connecting Victoria is focused on improving mobile coverage and broadband across the state.
The Victorian Government will partner with industry telecommunications providers to help deliver new infrastructure in as many places as possible, as quickly as possible.
The first locations to receive upgrades or new infrastructure are expected to be announced later this year, with more to come throughout the program.
How places will be selected
Help us identify where mobile and broadband improvements are most needed.
Have your say through the government’s Engage Victoria platform.
When selecting locations, we will also consider existing gaps in connectivity and where infrastructure improvements will make the most difference for communities and businesses, particularly in terms of economic opportunities, safety and inclusion.
Connecting Victoria builds on the state’s $130 million investment in connectivity projects since 2014 and will bolster the state’s economic recovery.
Victorian Mobile Project
More than 200 places around the state are now better connected, with new mobile base stations planned to be rolled out in towns such as Ararat, Winchelsea South and Tarwin Lower before the end of 2022.
