With the Toowoomba economy predicted to experience a $10 billion boom in the next 15 years, timing couldnt be better for Optus to switch on its new tower in Highfields, delivering improved coverage and capacity to its 4G mobile network across the Toowoomba region and surrounding businesses.

The Optus tower located at the Highfields Village Shopping Centre will deliver Optuss best ever 4G mobile coverage to Highfields. It also builds on Optus investment in the Toowoomba region, bringing to life a project years in the making.

Optus Territory General Manager for Southern Queensland, Nick Channell said the new site offers real competition and choice for Toowoomba and there has never been a better time for locals to make the switch.

Our coverage in the Highfields region continues to go from strength to strength and we are thrilled to be going above and beyond when it comes to increasing Optus network coverage footprint outside metropolitan areas, Mr Channell said.

Mobility opens up opportunity for individuals and businesses, so we understand the importance for customers to have strong mobile coverage where they are working, living and travelling. This new site will play a key role in helping to facilitate this across the Toowoomba Region.

Optus is excited to bring choice to the residents of Highfields with an additional mobile tower for the community. The new mobile tower is another example of Optus continued commitment and investment to a more connected Regional Australia.
