I often can't receive calls when sitting in my Mum's lounge room in Euroa, my sister lives on the other side of town and has to stand on a chair in the backyard to be able to hear the person on the other end of the phone.
I could only get reception at Pyramid Hill when I was on the hill itself, in Nathalia my mobile internet speeds were pretty awful and in Boort I can use Facebook, but no photos will load.
It's not a big deal for me, I'm just wanting to update my social media and rabbit on about what I'm up to for the campaign - but for those trying to run a business, it's just not good enough!
In other news, I'm quite amused that both the Nats and the Greens have me at number 3 on their list of preferences, whilst the Libs have me at number 7. Seems that Damian Drum agrees with the Greens more than he thought!
Cathy McGowan (Independent MP for Indi) has managed to get a huge amount of funding for mobile tower upgrades, apparently this was achieved by giving the department exact information sourced from her constituents as to where they lack coverage - certainly something I'll be emulating if successful on July 2.
