Bukkulla has been named as one of six blackspots to benefit from "new and improved" mobile coverage in the New England region.
It's sprouting from work set to be done as part of Round 5A of the Australian Government's Mobile Black Spot Program.
Deputy Prime Minister and Member for New England, Barnaby Joyce, welcomed the news that six mobile black spots in New England are set to be addressed.
"Macrocells will be constructed at Glen Elgin, Mole River Exchange, Tenterfield, Watsons Creek and Woods Reef Exchange with a further Small Cell at Bukkulla, north of Inverell," Mr Joyce said.
"These new installations are in addition to 45 new and upgraded towers which have already been installed in New England, following strong lobbying on your behalf - and I will continue to work hard for improved services across the New England."
He said the six new sites are set to provide improved mobile coverage for the local community, allowing visitors and locals alike to stay connected, access education services, conduct business and remain in contact with family and friends.
"I look forward to working with Telstra so that building the new infrastructure can get underway and the community can benefit from improved coverage."
Minister for Regionalisation, Regional Communications and Regional Education, Senator Bridget McKenzie, announced the Government has committed $20.5 million to fund 67 new mobile base stations across Australia.
The full list of base stations funded under Round 5A of the MBSP is available on the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications website.
