DO YOU live in an area of the Coffs Coast that has no mobile reception? Would you like to change that?

Federal member for Cowper Luke Hartsuyker has called for nominations of mobile black spot locations in the region, to be submitted by the end of the year.

The government has committed $60 million to help provide new or upgraded mobile coverage under Round 2 of the Mobile Black Spot Program.

"We know more than anyone in regional and rural areas that we need mobile coverage to conduct business efficiently and maintain our social connections," Mr Hartsuyker said.

Cowper did well under the previous round of funding Four new base stations at Brooms Heads, Hickeys Creek, Minnie Water and Taylors Arm were selected for funding.

The competitive selection process for round two is scheduled to begin in early 2016, and the Government expects to be in a position to announce the successful locations by the end of 2016.

Black spot nominations for Round 2 of the program can be made online at www.communications.gov.au/blackspots.
