PASSENGERS on the Bendigo line will be better off for mobile coverage thanks to the state government’s Regional Rail Connectivity Project (RRCP).

PASSENGERS on the Bendigo line will be better off for mobile coverage thanks to the state government’s Regional Rail Connectivity Project (RRCP).

About a quarter of V/Line’s Vlocity trains are now fitted with mobile signal boosters, with more trains set to roll out each week until the entire Vlocity fleet is connected by the end of 2018.

The government is working with Telstra, Vodafone and Optus to deliver the $18 million RRCP, which also includes the construction of 35 new mobile towers that will combine with the boosters to increase mobile coverage for passengers along the Traralgon, Geelong, Ballarat and Seymour lines.

But there’ll still be some blackspots until all trains are fitted with boosters and all the new mobile towers are up and running.
