SUNSHINE Coast residents should soon have better mobile coverage thanks to new mobile base stations being added to the region.

The development is part of the round 2 of the Liberal Nationals Government's Mobile Black Spot Program.

New mobile phone base stations by Telstra or Optus will be constructed in several suburbs on the Coast in 2017 including one at Dulong, between Kenilworth and Conondale, Reesville and Belli Park.

The Australian Government said in total, round 2 of the program will deliver 266 new or upgraded mobile base stations across the country which will provide new and upgraded handheld coverage to over 17,700 square kilometres of regional and remote Australia.
