The community in Carabost is among those hoping to be successful in the next round of the mobile phone blackspot program.
The lack of cover in the area has been raised by Greater Hume Council as a matter of urgency with Farrer candidates and Albury MP Justin Clancy.
Carabost is among 39 black spots in the Greater Hume Shire, according to the Australian government's database.
Round five of the funding program is open for applications from mobile network operators until the end of July with $80 million available.
An additional $80 million has also been allocated for round six, which was announced by Regional Services Minister Bridget McKenzie in April.

"So far, our program is funding the delivering of 1047 new base stations and generating over $760 million of new investment in mobile infrastructure," she said.
"I am thrilled that we are continuing to add to these impressive figures with a further two rounds of funding.
"Round five will have a strong focus on improving coverage in our regions at important community centres, such as medical facilities, schools and economic hubs."
Independent Farrer candidate Kevin Mack has raised blackspots in the electorate as an issue, though incumbent Sussan Ley has disputed the area has been left out.
"Farrer has had only 18 mobile phone towers in Rounds 1 to 4 of the Mobile Black Spot Program, compared with 42 in Indi," Mr Mack said.
"We need many more towers under rounds five and six of the program to address some of the hundreds of black spots that remain across the electorate."
Telstra is set to construct a small cell, which is a miniature version of a standard mobile base station, at Rosewood in the fourth quarter of this year, as part of round four of the program.
It's expected base stations are also set to go online in Mount Alfred, Berringama and Smoko, in Indi, next year.
