Nyirripi, Engawala and Laramba now have mobile phone coverage.
Central Desert Regional Council (CDRC) has had 4GX-lite Satellite Small Cells installed in the communities with funding assistance from the Federal Government.
The Small Cells, installed and maintained by Telstra, will give residents access to email and basic data and voice calls and text with a phone, tablet or other compatible device.
Access to mobile services will mean these communities will have increased safety as residents will be able to access emergency services via their mobiles, and reduced economic disadvantage to the residents due to access to competitive services online.
