In June 2021, October 2021, and most recently 13 and 22 February 2024, severe weather events brought down trees across Eastern Victoria, resulting in prolonged outages.   

This resulted in tens of thousands of people without the capacity to make any phone calls or receive data, including many who could not make triple zero calls. 

Add your voice to the call for Telstra, Optus, TPG and Vodafone to: 

  1. Improve mobile coverage across Eastern Victoria and eliminate 'blackspots'. 
  2. Take steps to deliver more resilient infrastructure to ensure that mobile telecommunications are maintained during prolonged power outage periods and restore coverage faster when it's lost. 
  3. Ensure access to Triple Zero is maintained.
