Optus boosting mobile coverage with $7.5 million investment in SA Featured

By

Optus has committed $7.6 million to mobile coverage on its 4G Plus network along the Fleurieu Peninsula and on Kangaroo Island South Australia.

Optus state manager for South Australia, Steve Fairfield, said the commitment was in response to customer feedback.

“Optus will build and activate 12 new sites in the next two years to improve mobile coverage and customer experience across the region for residents, businesses and the 500,000 visitors to the area," he said.

“Our customers have told us they want better indoor and outdoor coverage when they are at home and away and that’s why we are investing $7.6 million to improve coverage, deliver faster download speeds and reduce blackspots along key transport links including the Princes Highway, Southern Expressway, South Eastern Freeway and Victor Harbor Road.”

According to Fairfield, Optus coverage has improved on Kangaroo Island with the recent completion of two new sites at Vivonne Bay and Parndana.

“In the next two years Optus will build and activate 12 new sites at Carrickalinga, Clayton, Currency Creek, Langhorne Creek, Middleton, Mount Compass North, Nepean Bay West, Port Elliot, American River, Encounter Bay, Encounter Bluff and Woodchester.”

Recent upgrades in South Australia were carried out at sites at Goolwa, Strathalbyn, Milang, Mount Observation, Hindmarsh Island and in the Victor Harbor CBD.

Optus also announced it had opened its first store in Victor Harbor, creating four new local jobs.

Australia’s second largest mobile operator says in the past eight years it has invested $6 billion to build and maintain its mobile network and is investing $1.5 billion this year to expand and strengthen its national network.
