Optus has switched on a new tower in Wharparilla as a part of the Victorian Governments Mobile Black Spot Project, bringing dedicated Optus coverage to the town and its surrounds for the first time.
The tower, which is co-located on an existing NBN Co site on Mount Terrick Road, will play key role in providing dedicated mobile reception to more than 300 residents of Wharparilla and surrounds.
Optus Mobile Access Planning Manager, Vin Mullins, said, Its fantastic to be able to deliver dedicated Optus mobile coverage to the Wharparilla community for the first time, enabling residents to stay connected with their friends and family through reliable voice and data access.
The tower will provide dedicated 4G and 3G coverage to the farming districts of Wharparilla and across the Shire of Campaspe, including south of the Murray Valley Highway and south west of both Echuca and Kotta.
We understand the importance for residents in these areas to experience reliable mobile reception when travelling across the region, and this new tower takes us one step closer to providing this coverage.
Optus is pleased to be partnering with the Victorian Government, working to identify key mobile black spots across regional Victoria and bringing dedicated mobile coverage to these towns for the first time, Mr Mullins added.
Optus continues to invest in its network to improve coverage, reliability and speed across its Australian mobile network. The Optus mobile network possesses a unique mix of technology partners, global alliances and expansive spectrum holdings that position it as a leader in the Australian telecoms landscape.
