Optus has announced a $3.7 million commitment to further improve its 4G Plus mobile network in the Central Murray region, including planning new towers at Yarrawonga South and Blighty and activating towers in Moama and Yarrawonga East.
Optus’ state manager for New South Wales Dylan Harrad-Chantler said there was a growing demand for mobile services.
‘‘Optus will build a number of new sites to improve network coverage and experience for residents, businesses and visitors to the region,’’ he said.
‘‘We are seeing a growing demand for mobile services, which is why Optus is continuously investing to improve mobile coverage across Australia.
‘‘Once work is completed, customers will benefit from fewer call drop outs, better indoor and outdoor coverage and smoother streaming to mobile devices.
“Planning has started to build four new sites in Blighty, Corowa West, Willowvale and Yarrawonga South in the next 12 to 18 months.
‘‘We have also recently built and activated three new sites in Moama, Howlong and Yarrawonga East. In addition, we have expanded and upgraded our 4G network in Mallan and Wakool,’’ Mr Harrad-Chantler said.
In the past 12 months Optus has upgraded two sites at Mallan and Wakool.
